Sault Ste. Marie, Nov. 17. - The steamer WESTERN STAR proceeded on her voyage to Duluth this morning, a diver having made temporary repairs to her damage bottom. Pumps were able to take care of any leakage and an air compressor was left on board to assist if necessary. She will go to dry-dock at Superior after unloading her cargo. The yacht ALVINA left this morning after having been tied up since Tuesday awaiting cessation of bad weather. The storm signals were hoisted this evening for another blow. Inquiries are being made for the steamer HAVEY, which was last reported from Marquette on Monday.
