p.2 Trouble In Oswego - between Longshoremen's Union and Rathbun & Co's lumber dealers.

p.3 A Hard Voyage - We learn that the schooners Bangalore and Hyderabad, laden with salt, had a hard voyage to Chicago. Both vessels were harassed with head winds and head seas and worked so heavily that they sprung a leak. When the cargo of the Hyderabad was being unloaded Capt. Oleson, of the Custom House, found that 140 packages of salt were destroyed by water. The Inspector who examined the cargo of the Bangalore also found that a large portion of it was badly damaged.

Inspectors In Session - Steamboat Inspector Adams is at Ottawa attending a meeting of the Board of Steamboat and Hull Inspectors for the Dominion. The object of the meeting is consulting on the business of the year and considering the best means for carrying out the law. The Board will probably sit till Friday.

The Schooner Julia Gone Down - On Saturday noon the schr. Julia left port with 7,500 bushels of barley. The cargo was taken on board at Gananoque and belonged to Messrs. Richardson & Sons. Oswego was reached at 9 o'clock. While endeavoring to enter the harbor the schooner struck the middle pier and went down. The cargo is all under water. The grain was insured and there was $3,000 on the vessel. George Richardson has gone to Oswego and will have the craft raised. Captains say that Captain Courson was indiscreet in attempting to enter the harbor at night. The only safe entrance can be made in daylight.
