Capt. John Moulther, Oswego, has been appointed inspector of hulls, vice Capt. Michael Holland.

The tug Jessie Hall arrived last evening from Montreal with 3 barges loaded with railroad iron.

The schr. Grantham passed Port Dalhousie yesterday en route to Kingston with a load of timber from Toledo.

The tug Jessie Hall cleared this afternoon with 3 barges for Montreal. They carried 60,000 bushels of grain.

About seven o'clock last evening a man by the name of O'Brien, engaged in loading the schr. Glenora with railroad iron, fell down the hold. When picked up he was found to be unconscious. Dr. T.M. Fenwick, on examination, found that O'Brien had damaged several ribs, and had many cuts in his head. Nothing serious will come from the accident.

We Should Think So - In the interview with Capt. Hall, published in Thursday's Globe, a misunderstanding of one of Capt. Hall's statements caused that gentleman to be represented as giving incorrect figures. It was stated that the rate offered for corn, from Duluth to Montreal, was 3 1/2 cents, on which the transportation companies received 2 1/2 cents for the part of the trip from Kingston to Montreal. The rate of 3 1/2 cents should have been given as from Duluth to Kingston, the transportation companies receiving at least 2 1/2 cents in addition to this rate for that part of the journey from Kingston to Montreal.
