The steamer Stormount, with 97,500 bushels of wheat, and barge Hamilton, with 66,000 bushels of wheat, arrived from Fort William for the M.T. Co.'s elevator.

The steamer City of New York, which went aground near Halliday's Point, was released yesterday, and came on to Kingston. The vessel was not on very hard, and suffered no damage. She cleared for the penitentiary to load stone for Cobourg.

After being delayed for several days by the fog, the steamer Alexandria and steambarge Waterlily arrived at Folger's wharf, late Tuesday night, from Montreal. The fog is still so bad that the tugs of the M.T. Co. are making very slow progress.

p.3 The steamer Reliance arrived at Folger's wharf this morning from Montreal and cleared for bay ports.



Detroit, Oct. 28th - The steamer Langell Boys, with the barge Jackson, operating for Mershon, Scuatt, Parker & Co., Saginaw, pulled into port several days late after a trying experience on the trip down from Georgian Bay. Near Presque Isle, the Langell Boys ran her bow on a rock and was held fast, a heavy sea running, and grave danger of pounding to pieces. To release her it was necessary to throw the entire forward deck load of lumber, nearly 150,000 feet, into the lake at a loss of about $5,000.
