The prop. Dominion went west this morning. She left merchandise here from Montreal.

Mr. Thomas Martin paid to Charles H. Sprague and Frank M. Riley of Henderson, for the steambarge Good Hit, $5,200. The Good Hit measures 114 tons.

Capt. Dix gets 25 cents a ton on coal from Fairhaven and has to wait a week in order to unload it. The coal is carried about 75 miles. The inequality of the thing is shown when a horseman gets 25 cents for carting a ton a half mile.

On Saturday a barge belonging to Mr. Both, of Oswego, went to pieces near Fairhaven. She had on board a team of horses valued at $300, 784 barrels of onions and 1,215 barrels of apples, owned by E.P. Loemis of New York. Cargo uninsured. This is the third canal boat that has sunk on Lake Ontario this fall. (part of Carrie & Cora ? - ed.)
