p.3 Barley - The schooner Flying Scud with 8,000 bushels of barley left Belleville on Saturday. The barge Martin is loading at the same port and will carry about 20,000 bushels.

Marine Notes

The harbour is still quiet, and not much seems to be doing. Two or three vessels are reported down the Canal, however, which may brighten up matters a little.

Holcomb & Stewart - The prop. Scotia from Toledo lightened 5,200 bush. corn.

J. Swift - Called - Persian from Montreal; Lake Michigan from Hamilton; Oswego Belle from Oswego.

The schooners Pandora, Trinidad and Jennie Graham passed down the Canal for Kingston grain-laden.

M.T. Co. - The schrs. M.L. Higgie and City of Green Bay arrived from Moskegon with lumber for Quebec. The tug Active arrived from Oswego with barges Cayuga and Cleveland, with 1,140 tons of coal.

The schr. Ariel is loading barley at Richardson's wharf for Oswego.

The schr. A.W. Luckey, which was reported missed, is at Chicago.

Dismasted - Information received here yesterday reports the scow L.M. Guthrie as being in Goderich in a crippled condition. The Guthrie left here on the 22nd of September for Alpena to load lumber for Monroe. She managed to reach Alpena and received her load and left for below, when the gale caught her on Saginaw Bay, where she lost her spars and part of her deck load. After floating around for some time in this condition she was picked up by a tug and towed into Goderich, where she now lies waiting for a tug. [Detroit Press]

Hard Time - The upward bound fleet which has just arrived reports the recent storm as one of the severest ever experienced on Lake Erie. Scarcely a vessel has arrived or passed up but has met with some mishap. The schooner Elvina has arrived with her center-board gone and the hull otherwise shook up. The schooner Narragansett arrived with most of her head-sails so badly damaged that they had to go to the loft to be put in shape for another trip. The schooner Young America had her foresail split and part carried away, and is securing a few minor repairs before proceeding further. Many of the fleet were compelled to seek shelter. [Detroit Post]

Steamer Queen - The Gananoque Reporter says that the Queen has discontinued her Brockville trips, and hereafter will run to Kingston on Monday, Tuesday and Saturday. Leaving Kingston to return at three o'clock.
