Along the Wharves

The schooner Herbert Dudley, Capt. J. Parsons, arrived this morning from Kingston with grain for C.C. Morton. The Dudley was the last vessel to cross the lake last fall. Since her last appearance here she has received no ceiling, hatch combings, etc., and been thoroughly repainted.

The Kate Eccles came in at 11 o'clock with grain for Irwin & Sloan.

The tug John Navagh, Capt. Scott, is having things her own way about the harbor this week. She is the only tug in commission. Others will doubtless be put on next week.

The schooner Kate Kelly is receiving a new main topmast. The Kelly is always kept in first class condition.

No lumber has arrived at this port yet.

The tug F.D. Wheeler, owned by Littlejohn & Co., is being fitted out and will go to Port Ontario Monday after a raft of logs. Capt. Featherstonhaugh will command her again this season, and Harry Gallagher, formerly of the C.P. Morey will be engineer.

The new tug Charley Ferris will go into commission the first of next week. She is a beauty and in Capt. Ferris she will have one of the most careful and competent masters on the lakes.
