A few days of cold weather like this will close up the harbor.

The schrs. Herbert Dudley and White Oak left this afternoon for Cape Vincent. They had cargoes of barley.

The steam barge Saxon is still running on the lake. She is now loading barley at Trenton for Ogdensburg.

Two pontoons which broke away from one of the C.P.R. steamships, recently taken to Buffalo, came ashore at South Bay and are in possession of Mr. Alva Rose.

The steamer Armenia, of the Ogdensburg & Deseronto Line, has gone into winter quarters, having made during the season a total of 96 round trips and nearly always on time.

The Haydens, of Ogdensburg, Ohio, who own one of the most beautiful islands in the St. Lawrence, near Alexandria Bay, will put a new steam yacht in the water next season. It is now being built by Capt. Bertrand, of Watertown.

The wrecked propeller Oneida, near Alexandria Bay, is not strained to the extent first reported and can likely be raised, though the job would entail heavy expense. The sixty days, allowed the Insurance Companies to decide whether they will let her go by default and pay the insurance or attempt her recovery, has not yet expired.
