Marine Notes

There is very little, indeed, to report around the harbour, no arrivals having yet taken place, although a good many vessels are on their way down.

The prop. City of New York, while on her passage up, had to put into Clayton in a disabled condition.

The fog last night, so far as we are aware, did not cause any trouble around this section of navigation.
