The Ella Ross has been detained on account of her spring mattresses not fitting. She will be ready Tuesday.

The following vessels have been chartered to carry grain from Chicago to Ogdensburg: prop. W.L. Frost, corn, 50,000 bushels; prop. Newbury, oats and corn, 57,000 bushels; prop. Waverly, corn and oats, 50,000 bushels; prop. W.A. Haskell, corn, 60,000 bushels.

Capt. George McLeod, who went to see the steambarge W.B. Hall, which struck a lock in the Welland Canal and stove in her bow, says he does not think her cargo of wheat will be damaged. The Hall and cargo are insured in the Western of Toronto, and partly reinsured in the Pool. The Hall was bound for Kingston at the time of the accident.
