The crew of the tug Wright have raised the anchor dropped by the schr. Wilcox near Snake Island recently. It weighs 1,000 pounds.

The tug Active arrived with two barges and 1,200 tons of coal from Oswego. The tug Thompson left with four barges, and the tug Active with four barges, light, for Oswego.

The schrs. Grantham and Watertown have been laid up here. Freight rates are so low that vessel owners cannot see the use of risking their vessels in the storms at this time of the year.

The tug Munson has been having repairs made to her hull at Deseronto, and is now ready to receive her boiler at Belleville. She will then be taken back to Deseronto for her cabin and wheelhouse.

Incidents Of The Day - The tug Mary, with steam pumps, has gone to New Glasgow to render assistance to the Canadian schooner Jura, which is ashore there, laden with wheat for Kingston.

The steamer Hero brought 500 sheep from Picton this morning.

An Interesting Suit - Considerable interest was manifested today in the Maritime Court, held by Judge Price, in the Court House. Thomas Donnelly sued Senator J.G. Ross, of Quebec, for $4,000 or $5,000, for raising the str. Conqueror, wrecked near Clayton. The defence is that Donnelly was a servant of the wrecking company and had not a right to attempt a contract. The Dominion Wrecking and Salvage Company also sued for the cost of raising the tug. Witnesses from Quebec and other ports of Ontario were present.
