p.2 From Lake Superior - The propeller Manhattan arrived on Saturday, bringing to Hussey & Sinclair 79 bbls of copper ore, 48,826 lbs.; 51 bbls stamps, 40,320 lbs; 52 masses, 65,059 lbs, from Cliff Mine; and 10 bbls stamps, 10,000 lbs; 11 masses, 4,592 lbs, from Northwestern Mine. Copper also to Hanna, Garretson & Co., and pine decking, etc. from Detroit. No more will be ready for shipment from the Cliff Mine this Fall. The Manhattan will not return, but will probably make some trips to Buffalo.

The steamer Northerner arrived yesterday afternoon from Marquette, with no cargo for this place. She left 60 tons iron ore from Eureka Iron Mining Co., at Wyandott, 12 miles below Detroit. Her clerk, Mr. Palmer, reports heavy weather the whole trip. She left the Sault a week ago last Thursday, for Marquette, and the latter place on return two days thereafter. The North Star, which left Copper Harbor for Ontonagon about the same time, was obliged to run by to La Pointe. The Planet, bound up, was at anchor at Whitefish Point, on Tuesday night, the wind blowing fresh. The North Star was at Copper Harbor. The Northerner towed the schooners Freeman, G.W. Ford, and seaman from the canal into Lake Superior. The steamer Superior is on her way to Chicago. She will make one more trip to Ontonagon.

The Northerner goes today into winter quarters. [Cleveland Herald]
