The schr. Cora W. Post has had over $100 worth of repairs done to her at Robertson's dock. She was taken off yesterday afternoon.

The steamyacht Dandy has been seized for carrying passengers and luggage from Morristown to Union Park without reporting at Brockville. The boat was released on bonds being given to the amount of $400. The matter will go before the department for adjudication.

A gentleman who had occasion to drive the whole length of the Murray canal, states that the condition of the bank in some places is convincing the contractors that the ditch will have to be rip rapped from end to end. The soil is soft and as soon as it was used as a tow path it began to settle, and the wash of the water caused large patches to dissolve and sink into the canal. It is believed that it will be necessary to use the dredge at those places where the greatest washout occurred.
