p.2 Port Dalhousie, Aug. 16th - The propeller Congress, of Detroit, collided off Port Dalhousie pier with the propeller East, of Montreal, damaging the latter to the amount of three hundred dollars, and slightly damaging the former. The East is undergoing repairs at Mr. Andrew's shipyard here. The Congress resumed her trip to Ogdensburgh.

American Tug Rescue - The American tug Rescue came into port and remained a few hours this morning. She is one of the American government tugs which passed up through the St. Lawrence Canal this summer, en route for Lake Erie, and has recently been engaged in raising the hull of the John Rae, which has been towed into Oswego. The Rescue has gone down to the wreck of the propeller Magnet, an offer having been made to her owners to raise the vessel, which she will probably do if permission be obtained from the Canadian government. We understand that application was made for the above purpose to the customs authorities here, but it could not be granted.

Arrivals - 15-17; Departures - 15,16.
