The signal drum was elevated yesterday afternoon for a storm, and the storm came about seven o'clock last night, from the west. The forwarding trade is now beginning to fall off, as the season is drawing to a close, and freights being low, captains are now thinking of laying up for the winter. The arrivals since last report have been very small.
