Full Text

The propeller OREGON arrived yeaterday from Marquette with a cargo of iron ore. Her scorched afterworks, hastily patched with rough boards, did not give her a handsome appearance. As soon as she is unloaded she will go into dry-dock for extensive repairs, which will amount to from $3,000 to $5,000. She leaves her consorts BRUCE and CROSTHWAITE at Ashtabula. The three brought down 3,600 tons of ore. -- Buffalo Express.
