The sch. Agnes Hope arrived at Portsmouth yesterday from Port Hope with 14,000 bushels of peas, consigned to the St. Lawrence & Chicago Forwarding Co.

Had the Maud remained much longer on Horseshoe Island the results would have been more serious than they were. Considerable trouble was experienced in getting her off. The power of the Hiram Calvin was well taxed.

Loss By Fire - Capt. Crosley, who lived on one of the islands known as the Brothers, sustained a serious loss by fire on Thursday morning. He left home for the purpose of lifting fish nets at Sand Bay, and during his absence it is believed his house was set on fire. At any rate it was burned down and the loss to Capt. Crosley includes a neat building, a chronometer, a field glass, a gold watch and chain, considerable clothing, and papers entitling him to rank as master on lake and ocean vessels. The fire is to be deeply regretted.
