Free Fight - There was a row on board the schr. Tailor, last night among the hands. The vessel had arrived in the morning with a load of corn from Chicago, and the men got drunk during the afternoon. In the evening they got quarrelsome in their cups, and a man named Robt. Long is said to have attempted to use the knife, for which he got knocked down with a handspike, which cut his forehead badly. The captain was ashore at the time, but when he and the police went on board the row was stopped. Long was arrested on Ontario street in the evening drunk and noisy.
