The Schooner E. Hall Case - The legal controversy in regard to the schooner E. Hall has been settled on "p.t.," and as we were informed last evening, by Captain Dexter Eccles, one of the owners of the vessel, in a manner satisfactory to all parties, from which we judge that Mayor Poucher collected his claim for legal services. The schooner was turned over to the possession of Captain Eccles, and has gone to Canada. The embargo on the drawbridge is removed. [Oswego Times]
