The schooner Mary Ann Lydon is unloading its last cargo of coal at Crawford's.

The schooners Kitchen and Ford River are now on their last trip from Oswego to Kingston, with coal.

Swift's: schooner Metzner from Sodus Point with coal; steamer Dundurn down Monday; steamer Aletha from bay points.

The steamer Keefe is unloading 81,000 bushels of corn at Richardsons' elevator. The vessel will clear tonight for Chicago. The arrival of four more grain boats, one from Chicago, and three from Fort William, will be the windup of the season at this elevator.

No arrivals or departures were reported at the M.T. Co. today. Some of the tugs were tied up below Prescott yesterday, as the result of a heavy snowstorm. They will probably reach Kingston tonight, but owing to the delay, it was not known when they would arrive.

p.3 Cannot Go Out Today - Port Dalhousie, Nov. 26th - The tug A.D. Cross came down the canal today, to assist the tug Alert in searching for the bodies off the sunken tug Escort. Capt. Dunlop was captain of the tug Cross ever since the boat came out, until this season, when he was engaged for the Escort. Owing to a north-west wind and rain today, the tugs will be unable to go out until the weather clears up.

p.7 Gananoque, Nov. 25th - The coal schooner Briton, which has just finished unloading a cargo at Britton's coal sheds, will go into winter quarters here.
