p.3 Marine Notes

The Odd Fellow - At noon today the powerful tug Wm. Gardner, Jr., of Ogdensburg, took hold of the schooner Odd Fellow, ashore under Fort Ontario, and after making several "pulls," the tug succeeded in moving the vessel's stern about three feet, unshipping her foremast, tearing out the stub of the bowsprit, and parting a twelve inch line. The Gardner then retreated in good order. [Oswego Times]

The schooner John Magee has arrived at Chicago, minus a part of her centreboard, lost on Lake Erie.

A Good Freight - The prop. Maine of the N.L. Co., is on her downward trip with wheat on through rates, but which nets her 12 cents per bu. on the route between Chicago and Ogdensburg.

Off and In Port - The schooner Kate Kelley, ashore at Holland, was released on Friday night last, and reached this port early yesterday morning in tow of the tug James McGordon, of Muskegon, for docking and repairs. She is badly hogged. [Milwaukee Sentinel]

The schooner J. Bigler, Capt. Searls, left Chicago a month ago for Ontonagon to load lumber, and had not been heard from until Tuesday, when the owner, Mr. Geo. Finney, of Chicago, received a letter from the captain, announcing the arrival of the vessel at her destination. She is now, doubtless, on her way back. The captain writes that the vessel encountered terrible weather, and was boisterously handled, but sustained no damage.
