The new excursion stm. OSSIFRAGE will not come to Buffalo after all. Last evening its owner, F.W. Wheeler, sent a dispatch to the Crystal Beach Steamboat Co. stating that the steamer was under contract to run elsewhere. It is understood that the boat will be used by Gilman & Barnes of Detroit. The Crystal Beach Steamboat Co. supposed that they were sure of the boat, as the owner accepted an offer by wire last Friday. They will now have to arrange for a boat from some other quarter, as the PEARL is not large enough to accommodate the traffic.
