p.1 Court of Revision - H.C. Rothwell objected to assessment of strs. Princess Louise and Crusoe. That of former confirmed; that of latter reduced to $1,000.



The schr. Oliver Mowat cleared for Charlotte with iron ore.

The schr. B.W. Folger has arrived from Oswego with 225 tons coal.

The prop. Niagara has been chartered to carry barley from Portsmouth to Erie, at 3 1/2 cents.

The schr. A. Falconer cleared last night for Oswego with 12,000 bushels of barley.

The tug Active went up to Trenton this morning with barges carrying 750 tons iron rails.

The Norseman has carried 4,200 barrels of apples to Charlotte from Port Hope this season.

The tug Glide cleared for Montreal with four barges, having 20,000 bush. wheat, 1,200 tons coal and 400 tons phosphate.

The latest Portsmouth arrivals are: schr. Hyderabad, 19,767 bu. wheat from Port Lambton; prop. Niagara, Chicago, 23,600 bush. wheat; schr. Sweepstakes, Kincardine, 12,379 bush. wheat.

The Captain of the schr. Acacia was detained in Ogdensburg 1 1/2 days beyond reasonable time for unloading. The forwarder allowed him $45 demurrage, and there was no law over the matter.

The schr. Pride of America arrived nine days ago with coal. She is not yet unloaded. The owner of the coal has been taking out a little each day and claims that the Captain is entitled to no demurrage.

The sailors on the schr. Bavaria, just arrived at Garden Island, had a hard experience in the gale of Saturday night last. The vessel then passed down Lake Erie in a terrible sea - the worst the Captain says he has ever encountered. The waves dashed over the vessel, sweeping away everything movable. At one time four sailors went out on the boom to reef the gibs. Such was the storm that the end of the boom, 26 feet from the water, dipped several times; at one time the men were taken 8 feet below the surface. Captain Dix never expected to see his men again, but they clung to the ropes and came up safely.
