The tug Thomson, of the M.T. Co., cleared for Montreal, with one grain laden barge.

The schooner Acacia arrived at 8 o'clock Tuesday morning, from Oswego, with coal for R. Crawford.

Swift's: steamer Hamilton up today; steamer Belleville down today; steamer Cornwall up today; steamer Aletha from bay ports today.

It was stated in marine circles here, today, that there were six schooners waiting at Oswego, to be loaded with coal, but that they were being delayed, owing to the great demand at the present time for the coal at northern ports. Large shipments of coal have been made to Buffalo, within the last few weeks, and the bulk of this has gone north. Oswego has been cut off from a portion of its usual supply, and thus the delay to the schooners which are there.

p.8 Incidents of the Day - The steamer Corona passed here today on her way from Duluth to Prescott, with grain.

William Robinson, who formerly conducted a boat yard on King street west, is now settled at Huntsville, where he has a fine boat building business.
