The Chicago Times says that Captain John Moreland, of the Canadian bark Arabia, which arrived at that port on Tuesday from Kingston with stone ballast, was fined $20 by the customs authorities for not reporting at Cheboygan, in the Straits, as required by law. Captain Moreland paid the fine under protest, stating that the wind was blowing a gale from the northward when he entered the Straits Sunday night, and the sea so heavy that it was not deemed safe to attempt to land with a small boat; besides he had only stone ballast on board. The Arabia hails from Kingston.
