Report received in local circles states that the storm has cleared on the upper lakes, and that vessels are now making good headway.

Several grain vessels are expected to reach Kingston the latter part of the week, to discharge at the elevator of the Montreal Transportation company. The steamers to discharge are the Noble, Fairmount and Turret Chief.

The steamer Beaverton cleared for Belleville, to load cement for Fort William.

M.T. Co.'s elevator: tug Emerson light from Port Dalhousie; tug Bartlett cleared light for Port Dalhousie and will return with the barge Ungava, grain-laden, for Montreal; tug Thomson cleared light for Prescott and will return with three light barges; steamer Turret Crown arrived Tuesday afternoon from Fort William, and is discharging 88,500 bushels of barley. The Turret Crown was ahead of the storm on the lakes, so was not delayed.

The steamer Belleville went east on Wednesday morning.

The steamer Rideau King was due down from Ottawa on Wednesday evening. She will lay up at the end of the week.
