Craig's: steamers Alexandria and Waterlily down last night.

M.T. Co.: tug Hall from Montreal with two light barges.

Swift's: steamer Rideau King from Ottawa tonight; steamers Toronto and Caspian down and up; steamer Iroquois from Oswego; steamer Hamilton up tonight.

Customs Inspector Day, of Ogdensburg, surprised the fleet at Alexandria Bay, of gasoline launches the other evening, and found a good many of the owners running after dark without a light on the stern of the boat. Although no fine was imposed, a good lecture was the order of the evening, ere the seized boats were released.

The steamer Aletha was pulled partially up on the ways at the foundry dock yesterday afternoon for the purpose of adjusting a new wheel. The work was not completed in time for the steamer to return up the bay last evening, so the usual run was not resumed until today.

The cause of the broken wheel was due to the steamer striking a log on the down trip. The repairs were made in time for the return trip to be made at midnight.
