The props. Myles and Scotia were at Swift's wharf, wind bound.

Capt. Beaupre, of the schr. Hyderabad, says he delivered his cargo of salt in Chicago all right. He had not 140 bags damaged as has been stated.

Yesterday Capt. Sughrue piloted the steambarge D.D. Calvin to Brockville. The twelve miles between Alexandria Bay and Dark Island was covered in 55 minutes. The journey from Garden Island to Brockville was accomplished in 4 hours 40 minutes. She had 700 tons of coal on board.

The schr. Sam Cook was raised on Saturday, but another accident occurred on Sunday. The chains were a little too loose and as the vessel came up she suddenly turned half way over to the port side, and is now lying on her beam end on the bottom of the river. It is probable that Capt. Merryman will get a larger scow at Ogdensburg, and then proceed with the work.
