The steamer Stranger arrived from Gananoque with freight last night.

The tug Hackett and barge Katie Hackett arrived at Richardsons' elevator last night and loaded wheat for Montreal.

The stormy weather is still delaying the vessels. Several grain boats are on the way from the west bound for Kingston.

Swift's: steamer Aletha down and up today; steamer Belleville down Tuesday; steamer Dundurn up Tuesday night; schooner Cornelia for Sodus to load coal.

M.T. Co.'s elevator: The tugs Bartlett and Thomson arrived from Montreal with three barges each, and cleared for that part with three grain laden barges each.

Hard On The Schooners.

The weather of the past week has been very hard on the schooners. For a week three schooners have been at the Point, waiting for a chance to get across to Oswego, but the weather has been against them. This forenoon a couple of the vessels put back into port, as their supplies had run out. "We had tackled nearly everything but the canvas," said one of the sailors. After loading up again, the schooners will clear again. This is the time of the year when the weather is very uncertain, and when a great deal of time is lost. It is bad time for sailing, and many quit the job just at this time.
