Business - wharf business slow -
The Passport - The pumps with which the Passport is to be relieved of the water in which her lower deck is submerged were placed in position yesterday, and will be put in operation as soon as the lake becomes more calm. The wind was not so strong on Tuesday as it was on the previous night, but the water was very rough and slightly increased the damage already done to the lighter woodwork. Should the weather prove favorable the pumps will begin work today.
p.3 Marine News - The schooner Jas. Coleman is ashore at Nicholson's Island, Canada shore. No cargo.
The schooner Catharine, of Cobourg, is sunk near Presque Isle, laden with grain.
