p.3 Vessels On The Lake - The only Kingston vessels now in commission are the schrs. A.G. Ryan and Nellie Sherwood. The former was in port yesterday, bound from Adolphustown to Cape Vincent with a cargo of barley. She has another load to take from here. Last year the schr. Eureka was the last to lay up, but this year she has been shelved earlier than usual.

Struck Off The Docket - It will be remembered that last summer Captain Paul Clark, of the schr. Kate, had a difficulty with a party of shovellers of the K. & M. Forwarding Company about damaged grain, and in the melee Thomas Clancy was struck. The case came before the Magistrate and Clark was ordered to pay a fine of $5 and costs. He was afterwards fined $20 for carrying a revolver, which he is said to have pointed at a shoveller. Against these convictions he appealed, but at the Court yesterday they were struck off the docket by order of the Judge.

Marine Railway Work - Four schooners are at the Marine Railway to receive a general overhauling during the ensuing winter - Cavalier, Cameron, Annie Craig and Ayr.

The most important work of rebuilding will be that performed on the str. Admiral Porter, which will receive new main and promenade decks, and have her sides built up two feet. With these improvements the tug should be almost as good as new.

Whats The News? - vessels laid up at Cape Vincent - sloops Sea Gull and L.T. Vorce; schooners L.S. Hammond, Polly M. Rogers; the Hammond and Gull will be rebuilt this winter.
