Along the Docks.
The steamer St. Albans, which left for the West last evening, had a full load of freight and a large passenger list. The steamer Oswego Belle, Capt. Ely, is in port again with her accustomed regularity. The Bay route is becoming a necessity to the traveling public.
The repairs to the schooners Marysburgh, Gazelle and Speedwell are progressing rapidly, and the three will soon be discharged from the hospital. The plankshire, hatch comings and quarter deck of the schooner Nevada have been painted blue to correspond with the times.
Two years ago no captain thought of sailing in or out of port, but now the majority dispense with tugs. The night before last the Mystic Star was sailed in and nearly up the the bridge, while last night eight or ten vessels warped down to the pier, hoisted their sails and quietly department without the assistance of steam. Many of the captains claim that an ordinary vessel can pay her expenses and clear about five dollars a trip if she sails in and out of port.
The schooner Speedwell's lame mainmast was unstepped this morning and the new one will be put in this afternoon. Capt. Bob Coote is chafing under the delay and is anxious to be off, although there are not millions in freights.
