Along the Docks.

The schooner Garibaldi, Capt. Tommy Uglow, is to be thoroughly rebuilt at Goble & Macfarlane's yard this winter.

The largest fleet of the season came in last night. It was impossible for the night tugs to take care of the vessels and they sailed up the river pell mell until they brought up in shoal water. The captains must have exhibited good seamanship, for not a single rope yarn was broken.

The schooners John Magee, Captain Thompson, Knight Templar, Captain Delarum, Guiding Star, Captain William Griffin, which arrived in port last night, made the run from Milwaukee to this port in eight days. Each of the vessels reached Port Colborne in four days after leaving Milwaukee.

"Why don't you take both the bow and stern lines to the capstan at once?" asked a prominent doctor on the east side of the mate of a schooner, in which the doctor owns an interest, while the mate was heaving the vessel into the elevator. The mate looked at the doctor and replied that if the vessel was vaccinated she would probably go in without lines or capstan.
