p.3 Correction - We are informed that the Dry Dock By-law is one to enable the city to take stock, and not for granting a loan, as might be inferred from a paragraph in the News of last evening.

Marine Notes

The gale has moderated considerably, but the storm is still up, owing to instructions. The sea today is not as big, and it is possible for steamers to go out. The Magnet and the Dromedary left late last night for their destination.

James Swift - Arrived - the schr. Mary Ann, from Oswego, with 150 tons of coal; Oswego Belle from Oswego; D.R. Vanallen from Chatham; barge Early Bird left for Oswego with a cargo of ashes.

The schr. Babineau and Gaudry arrived up from Fisher's Landing this morning in tow of the Lady Franklin, with a steam pump on board. Her cargo is uninjured, but her bottom is badly stove in, and she is making a good deal of water, which requires lots of pumping to keep it out. The vessel is, as we stated yesterday, literally stripped, there being only an old jib left on her. She will have to be hauled out for repairs. The schooner is now lying at Swift's Dock, and her captain is probably in gaol in Oswego by this time. A Mr. Greene stripped the vessel to satisfy a debt which he had on her.

The dock at the foot of Clarence street, which for the past two years has been under water from the weight of the iron rails on it, is now being cleared up and repaired. We would suggest, while this is being done, that the piers at the railway track, where they have rotted away, should be repaired.
