p.2 The Yacht Octavia - This beautifully modelled ocean yacht did not leave last evening as intended. The tug steamer City of Hamilton towed her along the harbor this morning on her way downwards, the beauty of the craft attracting general attention.

-The steamer Watertown, which has taken the place of the Pierrepont, between this city and Cape Vincent, is making admirable time as her machinery is getting gradually into good working order.

-The stagnation in freights, says the St. Catherines Journal, is shown by the fact that the schooner Two Brothers has been lying at Port Dalhousie for the past week, waiting to receive orders to proceed to some place for a load, and has not yet received one. Yesterday she had her sails hung out to dry, probably with the intention of stripping and going into winter quarters. We understand that the Messrs. Muirs, as well as several other heavy vessel owners, are considering the propriety of ordering at least a portion of their vessels into winter quarters, as it don't pay to run them at the present rates of freight.
