Received Up To Sept. 1st As Last Year.

Up to September 1st there had been received at the port of Kingston by vessels coming through the canals, 1,376,499 bushels of grain. It is not one-half the amount received up to the same time last year, when a record amount of grain was received here. During the next three months, there may be possibly 2,500,000 or 3,000,000 bushels received. The total for this year will not be more than half of the total received at the elevators here last year, when about 15,000,000 bushels were registered by the local canal tolls collector.

On September 1st there had been received at this port since the opening of navigation, 11,618 tons of coal and 1,824 tons of iron ore.
