G. Tuttle left for Montreal today to take a position on the str. Glyde.

The str. Pierrepont started for Cape Vincent this morning via the head of the island.

The str. Ida, Smith's Falls, was sold by public auction last Saturday.Capt. A. Foster was the purchaser at $3,700.

Several Canadian vessels are expected at Oswego this week. Among the number is the str. Van Allen loaded with lumber.

Capt. H.S. Johnston, Clayton, has the keel laid and the frame work up for an elegant steam yacht. It will be about sixty feet over all, with about nine feet beam, and will be finished up in good shape.

This morning there was no oakum in the city for sale, and in consequence caulkers could not proceed with their work on vessels. There is plenty of oakum at Cape Vincent for the Kingston dealers, but they could not get their goods across until the ferry steamer was able to reach the Cape.
