The prop. RUSSIA having secured better freights to Duluth than she is now getting for Toledo, will be put on that route as soon as she arrives in Buffalo. The SCOTIA will follow her, but probably going light.

The prop. RUSSIA expects to leave for Duluth tonight. She will go in ballast as usual. Capt. McCrea states that the docks at Duluth are loaded down with coal, and look as though there would be no more needed there this season. The RUSSIA had to take her turn at waiting for an elevator and was delayed nearly a week on her last trip. Duluth has but 2 elevators, one of which is of no account in rough weather, but two more are building. One of them will be finished this season.
