p.3 Yacht Zada In Port - The 17 ton yacht Zada is at Eilbeck's dock. She is getting a new suit of canvas from Oldrieve & Horn. She is owned by an Albany gentleman, who intends to have her hauled out here in the fall for repairs.


The schr. Annie M. Foster is loading ore for Fair Haven.

The steamer Sumner ceased running today between Oswego and the Thousand Islands.

Capt. Donnelly has got the schr. Belle in shape for raising, and will attempt the lift today.

The strs. Passport, from Toronto; Corinthian, from Montreal; and Lake Ontario from Hamilton, called at Swift's yesterday.

The tug Chieftain arrived at the K. & M.T. Co.'s dock, Portsmouth, last night with three barges and 300 tons of street rails for the K. & P.R.R.

An investigation into the cause of the collision between the steamers Corsican and Prince Arthur, at Montreal recently, has been ordered by the government.

At the M.T. Co.'s wharf were: prop. California, Chicago, lightened 4,000 bushels of wheat, and the schr. Mitchell discharged 2,200 bushels of wheat. The tug Thompson arrived with 12 barges, light.

Henry Smith bought the schooner Belle in this city 3 years ago, and deeded it to his son Robert, who afterwards sailed it. Lately a dispute arose over as to who really owned the vessel, and it will probably be carried to a court of law. The boat is at Belleville, and there a rattling row occurred as to who should engage the cook. The son claimed he had the right, and chose the very one his father objected to. The latter then went to the Custom House office and ordered them not to give his son a clearance. At the same time he gave his case into the hands of a lawyer and he destroyed the deed. In the meantime the schooner is anchored off the harbor with no one to take charge of it.
