The Steamer Will Tie Up For Winter.

The schooner Acacia from Sodus is unloading coal at Booth's.

Folger's wharf: steambarge Waterlily down with 1,000 boxes of cheese; steamer Alexandria down.

The steamer North King arrived, last evening, from Toronto, and will tie up here for the season. She has been running from Charlotte to the Toronto exhibition during the past week.

Just as the steamer America was about to leave Folger's wharf, at five o'clock Tuesday morning, there was a slight breakdown in the machinery, which delayed the boat until nine o'clock.

Richardsons' elevator: sloop Maggie L. cleared for bay ports to load grain; sloop Laura D. cleared for Gananoque with grain; steamer Pueblo arrives today from Chicago with corn.

Swift's: steamer Kingston down and up today; steamer Hamilton up today; steamer Ames in yesterday, with package freight for Fort William; steamer Dundurn up today; steamer Aletha from bay ports today.

M.T. Co.'s elevator: steamer Wasaga from Fort William, 52,000 bushels of wheat; steamer Fairmount, 90,000 bushels of wheat, with schooner Melrose, 50,000 bushels of wheat from Fort William; tugs Emerson and Mary P. Hall cleared for Montreal, each with four grain barges; tug Bronson arrived from Montreal with four light barges, and cleared with three grain laden.

New Boats For Folger Line.

Charles E. Emory, owner of the Frontenac and Calumet Island, has volunteered to pay the cost of building two new steamers for the Folger line. He inspected the present boats and afterwards made the above offer. It is probable that the new boats will be built along the same lines as the Islander, and that they will be equipped with million candle power searchlights. They will be probably built at Kingston the coming winter.

Yachting Matters - Watertown yachtsmen would like to buy eighteen-rater Kathleen; she has never had a fair trial, as accidents befel her in each race.
