A BUSY HARBOR. - The strong northwest wind has driven a large fleet of grain vessels to our harbor, thus giving it a busy appearance which gladdens the hearts of dockmen. tugmen are in their glory too, darting hither and thither gathering dollars at every turn of the wheel. The ferry boys are also in high glee, carrying balmy sailors with pockets full of "sugar," and who cannot tell a fifty cent "shinny" from a ten cent plaster, from one side of the river to the other, reaping a rich harvest to keep the winter's wolf from the door.
