p.2 Propellor America - On Saturday morning the propeller America, which was under seizure at Montreal, quietly got up steam, and the chain which secured her to the wharf having been previously cut, the vessel forged ahead, breaking a cable which had her also attached, and away went the craft on the road to Toronto, greatly to the astonishment of the bailiff and his guard, who viewed the scene from the wharf. The America passed here without calling at Swift's wharf on Sunday morning, apparently all right.

Docked - The Corsican has been safely docked at Ogdensburg. There are two large rocks in her hull. They were punched through her bottom and lodged inside the boat. The repairs, etc., will cost the Company between $6,000 and $7,000. She will be repaired in the course of a few days, and is expected in Kingston on Thursday or Friday to lay up for the winter. The rocks found in her will be brought up as curiosities.

Marine Notes

There is nothing to report in the harbour this morning, except the arrival of the prop. City of St. Catharines, from Montreal at Swift's dock.

There is a gale blowing down the lake this morning, which should bring down any vessels that may be in the way.
