Full Text

Capt. James Scott, of Oswego, some years ago, when in command of the schooner Cornwall, befriended a lad named Corrigan. The latter subsequently amassed a fortune in the oil business, and his aim had been to repay his benefactor. Last week he offered Capt. Scott a quarter interest in the schooner Algerine, and a salary of $1,200 per annum to act as master of her as long as he chooses. Capt. Scott has accepted, and the Oswego Times says Capt James Curran, of the schooner J. McGee, will take charge of the Sam Cook, lately sailed by him, and Capt. Scott's son will assume command of the McGee.
