The steamer Goldspie is at the Locomotive works, having arrived this morning from Toronto with iron.

Messrs. Molther and Chestnut, United States steamboat inspectors of Oswego, N.Y., are here for inspection purposes.

The steamer Kingston is expected here from Toronto this evening. She will go on the dry dock next week, when her wheel has been taken off.

The steamer John Milne was pulled on the Kingston foundry marine foundry this morning to have a new wheel put on.

Craig's wharf: propeller Persia, on her first trip down, from Hamilton to Montreal. The Persia has changed her color, with green below decks and white above.

The steamer Hamilton of the R. & O. Navigation company, made her first appearance in port this morning, en route from Sorel to Hamilton. The color change gives a touch of newness, the hull and bulwarks of the first deck, green, and upper works white.

M.T. company: Arrived, steamers J.S. Keefe, Duluth, 78,000 bushels of wheat and rye; Turret Court, and Strathcona, each with 90,000 bushels wheat, Fort William. Cleared, steamer Carthaginia up light; tug Jessie Hall down with three light barges.

p.8 To Put Up A Gate - A large gate is soon to be erected for an entrance to Swift & Co.'s wharf. This will cause a wail of sorrow from the crowd of "summer girls" and others who were wont to go down to see the boats coming in and out. Last summer at times the wharf became so conjested that passengers had extreme difficulty in disembarking and embarking, so that this is the only measure to be adopted.

Here Making Arrangements - J.A. Goodearle, general manager of the Turbinia Steamship company, of Hamilton, is in the city, arranging for the entry of the steamer Turbinia to the government dry dock and for repairs to be made to her.
