p.2 Fast Work at Buffalo - The Buffalo Commercial of Thursday last says:- "On Monday evening last we had about 600,000 bushels of grain afloat in the Buffalo harbor, and in less than 36 hours thereafter, as we are informed by our elevator owners, every bushel had been put in store, and as we further learned by the Custom House clearances, a large portion of the vessels reloaded and cleared for up lake. There is no port in the world where they can, or ever have the opportunity, to store an equal amount in the same time. And yet no one at the time supposed from appearance anything unusual was going on."
