The schooner Clara Youell is laid up here for the winter.

It is expected that next week will see the wind up of the coal carrying season.

The steamer Simla is expected at Richardsons', today, from Fort William with grain.

The tug Emerson arrived with two coal-laden barges for the M.T. Co. and cleared for Charlotte.

The schooner Queen of the Lakes arrived from Charlotte with coal, and is unloading at the spile dock.

Craig's: propeller Persia down this morning; schooner Granger from Wolfe Island, is unloading hay at the G.T.R. freight sheds.

The steamer Lambert arrived for the M.T. Co., from Chicago, with 81,000 bushels of corn, and after discharging cleared for Cleveland.

The captain of the schooner Queen of the Lakes reports that there was a heavy gale on the lake last night, and as a result, one of the sails of his vessel was split.

The schooner Acacia, which arrived with coal for Crawford's, is being unloaded today. The work will be completed tomorrow. The Acacia may go for another cargo of coal, but may possibly lay up for the winter.

Swift's: steamers Picton down, last night; Belleville down today; Bickerdike cleared this morning for Port Arthur with hay for Foley Bros.; schooner Clara clears today for Sodus to load coal; steamers Aletha down and up the bay today; Rideau King up tonight from Ottawa, and clears tomorrow for Ottawa on her last trip of the season. The Rideau King has met with no serious accident this season, and though her wheel was disabled she lost practically no time on her season's run. This season was the most profitable in the history of the Rideau Lakes Navigation company.


Death of Capt. Patterson.

Word was received in the city this morning, of the death, at St. Paul, Minn., of Capt. Francis Patterson. He had barely reached home after a visit to his daughter, Mrs. James Minnes, in this city, when heart trouble, from which he had suffered, overcame him. He was born in Scotland, seventy-eight years ago, and for many years was identified with marine interests in Kingston. He then moved to Winnipeg, and from there to St. Paul, where he lived for six years. His widow, who was a Miss Falconer, sister of Mrs. Archibald Strachan, survives him, together with one daughter and four sons. Two of the latter are in St. Paul, and two in the far west. When in Kingston he was an attendant of St. Andrew's church. The body will be brought here for burial. Capt. Patterson was a man most highly esteemed, and his death will be most widely regretted. It is a great consolation to friends here to know that so recently they were privileged to have him among them.
