Canadian authorities would not allow the schooner O.M. BOND, which was raised at Port Dalhousie, to pass throught the canal until temporary repairs had been carried out. This has been done and ere this she has arrived at Buffalo ?

      Port Colborne, Aug. 3. - The wreck matter of the schooner O.M. BOND is still in abeyance. The damage to hull, rigging, and outfit is said to be about $4,975 and the wrecking expenses were $2,700. The BOND was insured for $7,000 on a valuation of $9,400. It would thus take a net loss of $4,700 on the part of the hull to make her a total loss. Her owner, it is alleged, would like to turn her over to the underwriters and get his $7,000, and the latter are quite willing to let him keep his vessel. The 130 tons of her coal cargo, left at Port Dalhousie are expected here by Thursday, when it will be possible to make an adjustment on the loss. After allowing on the repairs one-third new for old and deducting the amount to be contributed by the cargo, it will be a close call whether she is a total loss or not.

      The underwriters have made a contract with R. Mills & Co., to repair the schooner O.M. BOND. The work will be begun at once and be pushed to completion. When finished she will be tendered to her owner.
