The steamer Kenirving passed on her way from Oswego to Smith's Falls with coal.

The steamer Ames arrived, Saturday night, from Fort William, with 50,000 bushels of wheat, for Richardsons.

The steamyacht Castenet, owned and operated by the Visgers, is in the government dry-dock, having some repairs made. She will be on the ways two or three days.

Swift's: steamer Dundurn, up, Saturday; steamer Caspian, down and up, Sunday; steamer Rideau Queen, from Ottawa, Saturday, and from Clayton, Sunday; schooner Keewatin cleared for Sodus; steamyacht I Wonder, Alexandria Bay, up, today.

Four steamers belonging to the fleet of the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Navigation company, with headquarters at Chicago, are below the Cornwall canal break. The latter four are loaded with cargoes of nitrate of soda which is used in the manufacture of dynamite, consigned from the west coast of Africa to Ashland and Chicago. The delay will mean a big loss to these vessels, as the owners cannot discharge their crews while in Canadian territory.
