On Saturday afternoon the steamer Lambert released herself from the grounding at Cross Over light, on the St. Lawrence river. Though leaking a little, she proceeded west. The water on the river rose somewhat with the wind, and the Lambert backed herself off. The tug Frontenac, of Garden Island, was there at the time, but her assistance was not required.

The cargo of the steamer Duncan, about 1,200 tons of coal, has been sold to Swift & Co., and the transfer of it from the leaking vessel to the wharf was commenced on Monday morning. The steamer Duncan, it will be remembered, sprang a leak on Lake Ontario last week, and was fortunately beached on South Bay before she sank. After part of her cargo had been lightered by the Donnelly company, the Duncan came on to Kingston, and will go into the dock for repairs. On Monday morning when the vessel was brought down from the shipyard wharves to Swift's, she grounded about twenty feet off that wharf, and the whirlie was brought into service. A pump was being operated on the Duncan.
