Marine Notes

The prop. Scotia had a narrow escape from running ashore on Thunder Bay Island through neglect of the light keeper to sound the fog whistle.

The new missionary ship Glad Tidings was launched at Chicago on Wednesday at four o'clock in the afternoon, in the presence of a multitude of people variously estimated at from 1,500 to 2,000.

Persons interested in vessel trade at Cleveland state that collections were never better than during the present season of low freights. The reason given for this apparent paradox is that owners oblige their captains to pay bills as fast as they make them, buying everything at the lowest cash prices, and when they do not take in money enough to pay their running expenses they propose to lay them up.
