Marine Notes

The harbour continues quiet and there is no business of any account going on. The only grain reported to have arrived is the lighterage of the prop. Alma Munro, at Holcomb & Stewart's, with 4,300 bush. wheat from Toledo.

James Swift - At this dock the schr. Mary Ann is unloading 114 tons of coal from Oswego. The other arrivals are: the D.R. Vanallen which unloaded 303 bbls. apples from Chatham; Prussia from Montreal; Kincardine for Ogdensburg with 10,000 bush. barley from Belleville; prop. Armenia from Montreal with 159 bags of potatoes.

The tug Morey, with several marine experts left port this morning for Stoney Passage for the purpose of taking a survey of the schr. Orient. If it is deemed advisable, after the survey has been made, the tugs Summer and Crusader will be sent down to the vessel and an attempt will be made to tow her into Henderson bay, where she can be raised. [Oswego Times]

The sloop Cora left this port about three weeks ago for Port Hope, but owing to stormy weather and adverse winds she did not arrive there till yesterday. The Captain of the schr. Great Western reports a vessel, name not given, was 18 days in making the passage from Kingston to Port Hope. [Oswego Times]

The schooner Nellie Sherwood, Capt. Courson, left Trenton on Thursday night last for this port with barley. She arrived here Friday night, discharged cargo, cleared for Trenton at 10 a.m. Saturday morning, and arrived at her port of destination Sunday morning. She took on another cargo of barley, and arrived here before sundown yesterday. [Oswego Times]

Schooner Missing - The lumber schooner A.W. Luckey left Au Sable on the 27th of last month for this port, since which time nothing has been learned concerning her, and it is feared that she was lost in one of the terrific gales which have prevailed during the past two weeks. [Chicago Times]

Arrival of the Typo - The schooner Typo, damaged by collision with the propeller City of Madison, as already reported by the Sentinel, arrived here yesterday morning in tow of the tug Caroline Williams, of Manistee. From the statement of Capt. Bruce, it appears that the vessel was fast dragging from anchorage under the South Manitou Island during the fierce northeast gale of Tuesday last, and in danger of drifting ashore on a spit nearby, when, in response to a signal of distress, the City of Madison came to her rescue. In attempting to get alongside the propeller ran into the stern of the Typo, cutting the yawl boat in two, breaking her rudder, stock, sternpost, three deck beams, and inflicting damages to the amount of about $800. The vessel was finally secured and towed under the land. The quick work around the propellers bows was badly racked by the vessel's mizzen boom. [Milwaukee Sentinel]
