The steambarge Arctic cleared, light, for Deseronto.

The schooner Bertie Kalkins is at Sowards', from Oswego.

The schooner Clara Youell cleared for Sodus from Booth's.

The schooner Suffel is in from Charlotte with coal for Crawford.

The steamer Simla cleared from Richardsons', for up the lakes.

The steamers North King and Toronto made the trip down the river this morning.

The steamer John Milne passed through on her way up the Rideau, to Smith's Falls, with coal.

The yacht Wince, owned by A.W. Friend, Pittsburg, Pa., will go on the government dry dock, Saturday.

The steambarge Business from the upper lakes was in port today. She had a loose wheel fixed and proceeded to Quebec.

The schooner Acacia while lying in port awaiting her turn to unload her cargo of coal, at Swift's, is having some patching done to the side of her hull.

M.T. company: tug Mary P. Hall and two light barges from Montreal, returning with two grain laden; tug Emerson cleared for Montreal, with two grain laden barges.

Navigation Not Delayed.

The two laden barges, Valencia and Jet, ashore near the Cardinal canal, are evidently not in a position to interfere with navigation as the steamer Belleville passed up last night, though she was six hours late through regular course of work, discharging freight, etc. The steambarge Waterlily from Montreal passed up to Picton early this morning and the steamer Alexandria, from Quebec, to Olcott, N.Y., is expected up tonight on time. The propellor Cuba also passed up this morning en route to Windsor.

It Is Dying Out.

The superstition with which sailors have long been credited must be dying out, as occasionally a new vessel has commenced its initial trip on a Friday. This is true of the new barge Ungava, which left in tow of the steamer Rosemount on Friday. The steamer and her consort ran up to Fort William, where they loaded grain for Kingston.

Incidents of the Day - The latest acquisition to the local yacht club fleet is the new motor boat of Arthur Cunningham. It is a fine little pleasure craft and can show its heels to most yachts of its size.

p.3 Gananoque, Aug. 3rd - The schooner Collier cleared for Charlotte yesterday. The steamer Missisquoi took another large crowd to Brockville this morning.

p.7 Newboro News - The large gasoline launch, built by F.C. Landon, was launched Wednesday morning. As this is the first launch built here by a local boat builder, its progress will be watched with considerable interest by local boatmen.
