The schr. Eureka, of Kingston, left Oswego on Thursday night, but had to run back into that harbour owing to the heavy sea.

The schrs. Gaskin and Glenora have discharged their cargoes here, and returned to the Canal in tow of the tug Active to await orders.

The tug Bronson clears this evening for Montreal with three barges, carrying 60,000 bushels of wheat and 121 tons phosphate, also two pin flats laden with 200,000 feet of deals and 270 tons of phosphate.

The schr. John Gaskin ws 121 bushels short on a cargo of 38,000 bushels. The Captain and mate of the craft made the necessary affidavits at the Custom House, and thus obtained exemption from duty on the deficiency. The new regulations are quite satisfactory to mariners.

The schooner Prussia, laden with coal from Cleveland for Brockville, ran ashore last night on the reef just above Snake Island light. Capt. J.F. Allen, with the wrecking tug Hiram A. Calvin, went to her assistance and succeeded in getting her off and towing her into port. She will proceed to Brockville this evening.

The schooner Aurora, with lumber from Trenton, struck the inner light house pier at Oswego yesterday morning, and had her bob stays and whole head gear carried away. A few planks on the bow and side were stove in also. The Captain says he entered the harbour all right until the breakwater was put there, and it is a positive nuisance.


Prop. Prussia, Chicago, 6,600 bush. wheat.

Barge Otonabee, Noble's Bay, 121 tons phosphate.
