p.3 Picton, Nov. 19th - The export shipping from Picton and environs this fall has created a record. For the past month or six weeks the steamers Alexandria, Niagara, Waterlily and Aberdeen have been making weekly trips to Montreal loaded with apples and canned goods. The Alexandria was to have laid up this week but there was so much freight that she was forced to make another trip, leaving last night loaded with apples and canned goods. The Niagara also left port loaded for Montreal.



The fog on the lake on Monday night delayed some of the M.T. Co.'s tugs on their way up from Montreal.

The steamer George S. Howe arrived at Richardsons' elevator at noon, today, from Chicago, with 82,000 bushels of corn.

The schooner W.J. Suffle, which cleared for Charlotte, with feldspar, sprang a leak when at McDonald's Cove, and returned back to Kingston late on Monday afternoon.

M.T. Co.'s elevator: the steamer Fairmount arrived from Fort William with 90,000 bushels of wheat and barley; schooner Lizzie Metzner from bay ports with barley.

Swift's: steamer Belleville down today; steamer Hamilton down tonight; on last trip of season; steamer Aletha from bay ports; schooner J.B. Kitchen, from Sodus Point with coal.
