The schr. Ella Murton is loading lumber for Oswego.

The barge Nebraska is unloading stone at the M.T. Co's wharf.

The steambarge Nile and tow are expected up today from Ottawa.

The str. Princess Louise is on the ways at Portsmouth being repaired.

The schr. Gulnair, ashore at North Point, is abandoned and being stripped.

The tug Eleanor and barge Quebec cleared today for Cape Vincent with 200,000 feet of lumber.

The schr. Fleetwing leaves for Oswego this afternoon loaded with lumber, also the barge Quebec in tow of the tug Eleanor.

The str. Reindeer is on Davis' dry-dock. The Rideau Belle has also been redocked, a split in her stern pipe having to be caulked.

The str. Haggart has made her last trip this season, and will shortly be tied up for the winter. The owners, Messrs. Seeley and Moffatt, intend to cut her in two before spring and add 25' to her length. They are looking up timber now for the job.

The str. Powers, in June 1889, collided with the schr. America and damaged her considerably. Capt. McGraw, owner of the America, demanded $5,500 damages, claiming that it cost that amount to repair the schooner. The owners of the Powers tendered $3,900. Judge Blodgott, in Chicago yesterday, held that the tender was sufficient and ought to have been accepted. So Capt. McGraw has to pay the costs.
