There is not much doing in the harbour today, the arrivals being very few in number.

Sarcastic - The fine art reporter of the Oswego Palladium must have been bilious when he got off the following paragraph:
"The marine artist who painted the picture on the stern of the schooner Snow Bird, of Kingston, ought to be made a Fellow of the Royal Academy. The leaning tower of Pisgah, the dove, the floating mast, the modern propeller, and one of Cunningham's stranded yachts, taken with the sky and water, stamp him as a painter who will yet make his mark - with a whitewash brush."
The war waged by the Chicago Inter-Ocean against female cooks has borne good fruit. A great many vessel owners have compelled their captains to give up carrying them, and the result is that a higher state of morality will probably prevail in future on the Lake schooners.
