The Chicago Inter-Ocean says the schooner Mary B. Hale, Captain Woolnough, came in on Tuesday with lumber from Cedar River. The captain reports having seen three water spouts when about seven miles northeast of Grosse Point, on Monday morning. The captain of the propeller Tempest reports having seen two water spouts about five miles off Chicago on Monday night, one of which appeared to be within twenty or thirty feet of some vessel.

The schooner John Magee takes corn from Chicago to Kingston at 6 3/4.

The Chicago grain-trimmers have had a meeting and served the following notice on masters: "We, the grain-trimmers, will advance the price of trimming all classes of grain August 14th (today) to $1.50 per 1,000 bushels. All vessels with parts of cargoes in will be finished at the old rates. We are no strikers. We are law-abiding citizens, and the most of us are tax-payers. All we want is a fair compensation for our labor."
