The schr. Philo Bennett is loading lumber for Oswego.

Breck & Booth have chartered the schooner Dunn to carry railroad iron to Windsor.

The props. Ocean and Celtic called at Swift's wharf yesterday. They were both from Montreal.

The schrs. Proctor, from Charlotte, and Singapore, from Cleveland, arrived this morning with coal.

A life saving station has been established at Port Hope, and a captain and crew of six men are being selected.

The schr. Nassau, coming down the lake, was struck by a gale and sought shelter in Big Sodus bay, but was unable to enter on account of the heavy seas. The large anchor was dropped, but it snapped off and tore abouit ten feet of the bulwarks with it. The small anchor was then dropped and the vessel rode out the storm.

The steamer Rothesay was purchased on Wednesday by Isaac B. Futvoye, of St. John, Que., for $2,000. It is said that Mr. Futvoye represented the interest of Governor Smith, notwithstanding the report that he did not own the Rothesay. Canadian law is such that no person in the States can own a Canadian vessel, except through another person. But the opinion prevails that Governor Smith virtually owned the steamer when she sank.
