CAPT. BROOKS RETURNS TO TAKE SELWYN EDDY TO COAST.
      Capt. Walter Brooks, representing the Coastwise Transportation Co. of New York and Boston, returned to Buffalo yesterday from Montreal where he had been looking after the putting together of the steamers HARVEY H. BROWN and LACKAWANNA, which were recently taken down in sections to that port.
      Capt. Brooks figures on leaving here with the two parts of the SELWYN EDDY next Monday or Tuesday. When the EDDY leaves the drydock the steamer MARYLAND will go in to be cut in two for the trip through to Montreal.
      The steamer CORSICA which has been bought by the same people is in No. 2 drydock having twenty plates replaced. She is now waiting for a stern frame.

The good ship CORSICA, recently sold to the Coastwise Transportation Co., of New York, was yesterday pulled apart at the Buffalo Drydock. She is now in two pieces and ready for the trip to the Atlantic coast, so far as the hull is concerned, However there s still considerable work to be done on the CORSICA's machinery, and she will not leave for the east for about twelve days.
