p.2 The Last Freight For the Season - The steamer Lord Elgin took a full cargo of flour to Oswego last week, and will be laid up at that port for the winter. By this arrangement Mr. Browne will be enabled to deliver spring goods for Toronto and Hamilton as soon as the harbors can be entered - a convenience which the trade will heartily appreciate. [Hamilton Spectator]

The Lord Elgin is at present on the Marine Railway, in this city, but she may yet go to Oswego to be "laid up at that port for the winter." Doubtful.

The Government have decided on placing a light on Point au Pelee Rock. The necessity of this light has long been felt by vessels navigating the North Shore.

The "Ogdensburgh Marine Railway" - We casually alluded to this new and laudable enterprise some weeks ago; and we are truly gratified to know that the Company is now pressing forward their extensive Wharves and Railway with great energy, to have them completed for the early spring business. The trustees have enlarged their ground and river front, making it the most capacious railway and ship-yard between Quebec and Chicago. Mr. H.N. Ault, of Kingston, an experienced ship-builder, has been employed by the Company to put in this work. When completed, it will add largely to the commercial and business interests of Ogdensburg. The subscription to the stock now exceeds twenty thousand dollars, which is held principally by our business men, who have come forward with commendable zeal in aid of the enterprise. The cost of the work will not much exceed $25,000, so favorable is the site chosen by the trustees. [Ogdensburg Republican]
