The schr. White Oak was towed up from Prescott this morning. She may go into winter quarters here.

The schr. Annandale brought 194 tons of coal from Oswego. She arrived this morning. The rate is 35 cents.

The prop. Celtic made $1,300 in taking the cargo of wheat from Hamilton to Prescott. A law suit may follow as the owner of another propeller had offered to take the load and then backed out.

The Traveller - Capt. Sughrue, of the steamer Hiram Calvin, thinks that "too much honor and glory" was given to Capt. Donnelly anent wrecking operations on the Traveller and her boiler. Capt. Sughrue located the boiler promptly; Captain Sullivan engaged the diver and diving dress; Capt. O'Brien and the mate of the Prussia rigged the purchases and hoisted the boiler on deck, after it had been towed to shore. The crews of the three boats worked most energetically in the wrecking.

Hay Contracts - Mr. I.H. Radford has chartered the schr. Eliza Quinlan to take a cargo of hay from South Bay to Cape Vincent at $1.75 per ton. The sloop Empress and schr. Nellie Sherwood take hay from Pittsburg and Howe Island at 90 cents and $1 to Clayton and Cape Vincent.
