Honor To The Brave. - The Maple Leaf, Capt. Carr, of this port, a noble vessel belonging to Messrs. Crawford & Hovey, left Chicago three days behind the fleet which arrived on Friday, was the first through the ice, and the first Upper Lake vessel through the Canal, went to Ogdensburgh with a cargo of grain, which she discharged and returned to Oswego, where she arrived Saturday, just about one day after the first of the fleet. This is a great feat, proving the Maple Leaf the fastest vessel in the crowd by several days. All honor to Capt. Carr, who would like to borrow that hat!
