Tug (sic) Mary Louise, at Locomotive works, with brick from Washburn.

The schooner Julia B. Merrill arrived at Collin's Bay with coal from Oswego.

There is quite a demand for pressed hay at Fort William, and during the past few weeks, several of the steamers have been loading hay at Wolfe Island and Howe Island.

Swift's wharf: steamer Glenella called on her way to Wolfe Island to load hay; steamer Belleville cleared for Toronto last night; steamer Aletha down and up today.

The steamer Sowards arrived from Oswego with coal for Sowards. She had to come away without the schooner Major Ferry, owing to the fact that the schooner could not be loaded until today.

The steamer Alexandria was so crowded with freight, when she arrived at Folger's wharf, Monday night, on her way to Montreal, that she was unable to take all the freight that was waiting for her on the wharf. She had a large cargo of cheese and apples, from Picton, and put on some more cheese in Kingston.

Owing to the fact that the water is getting very low in the river, nearly all the grain, coming down from Fort William, is being transhipped into large barges at the M.T. Co.'s elevator, in this city, instead of going on to Montreal. The grain is being transhipped into the barges, and the barges are sent on to Montreal, with very little delay.

M.T. Co.'s elevator: steamer McKinstry cleared for Belleville to load cement for Fort William; tug Mary from Montreal, two light barges; steamer Kinmount, from Fort William, transhipped 72,000 bushels of wheat into barges, cleared for Fort William, light; steamer Glenmount from Fort William, transhipped 73,000 bushels of wheat into barges and cleared for Fort William; steamer Fairmount, from Fort William, transhipped 70,000 bushels of wheat into barges, and cleared light for Fort William; tug Glide cleared for Montreal with two grain barges; tug Emerson cleared for Montreal, with four grain barges; tug Thomson arrived from Montreal with four light barges.

p.4 News of World - The steamer Langham, bound for Port Arthur with coal, was burned on Lake Superior near Calumet.
