Rush Is Now On From Fort William.

It has been very busy at the M.T. Co.'s elevator the past few days. Yesterday two vessels, the steamers Jacques and the McKinstrey, were unloaded, and both cleared for the Welland Canal. The steamers Acadian and Westmount are due to arrive during the day.

The steamer Tagoma ? arrived Friday, and is being unloaded today.

The steamer Fairmount is also on the way from Fort William, loaded with grain.

The steamer Wolfe Islander had a record crowd on board on its first trip over to Kingston this morning, on account of the market. Two hundred or more baskets were in the line-up, containing choice butter and eggs for Kingston people.

The steamer John Sharples is being unloaded of her cargo of corn, at Richardson's elevator, today. The vessel has been viewed by a very large number of people.

The little steamer Sally, which sank in an accident off Point Frederick, and which was raised by the Donnelly Wrecking Co., cleared for Howe Island yesterday afternoon. The Donnelly company made a good job of their task, and also made a quick job. A start was made at nine o'clock in the morning, and at two o'clock the vessel was raised.

The hull of the steamer Ottawa, raised at Cape Vincent, was towed to Kingston, last night, by the steamer Pierrepont. It is just a question as to whether it will be of any service, but this will be known when an examination has been made.

The steamer Glenellah passed down today on her way to Montreal.

The steamer Sowards arrived from Oswego and is unloading coal at the dry dock.
