p.2 Grain Arrivals And Freights - There is a marked improvement in grain freights both up and down the lake, and considerable inquiry exists for vessels. The barque Waterwitch and schooner Sweepstakes, with wheat from Chicago, and the schooners Andes and Storrs, with corn from Toledo, arrived here yesterday.

Fresh Breeze - Early this morning the wind on the lake blew a close-reefed topsail breeze, which continued unabated until midday. The steamer Rochester for Oswego put back from stress of weather, as did also the steamer St. Helen for Trenton. Several barges laden with leached ashes for Oswego, and other small craft, also put back from the same cause.
