Craig's wharf: steambarge Hobson, from Cleveland, down to Montreal.

Richardsons' wharf: steambarge Navajo from Montreal with general cargo.

G.T.R. wharf: sloop Laura D., from Wolfe Island, with eighteen tons of hay.

The schooner Queen of the Lakes is at the government dry dock to enter for repairs.

Another tow of grain barges from the M.T. company elevator, is to go to Montreal, probably tomorrow. This will likely be the last of the season.

The steamer Donnelly went down last evening to release the M.T. company barge Melrose, which ran on a shoal at the Brockville Narrows, yesterday morning. The tug Emerson, which came from Prescott to its assistance, was unable to float her, as the leakage was severe. Probably one third of the Melrose cargo will be damaged. When released she will be brought to Kingston.

p.5 Marine Notes - The schooner Queen of the Lakes went into the government dry dock, this morning, to have some caulking done to her hull. She returned last night from Charlotte light, having, while there, discovered a leak, and it was feared to burden her with a cargo of coal.

The sloop Maggie L. arrived today, noon, at Richardsons' with grain from bay ports.
