Along the Docks

Messrs Drewry & McDougall are constructing a cover dam across their slip to afford them an opportunity to blast the rock. They will have a a depth of twelve feet of water when the work is completed.

The float to be used in sub marine blasting by the D.L.& W. Railroad is rapidly approaching completion under the watchful eye of Henry Stowell.

The schooner Eliza Fisher, Captain Brotherton, left this port last Sunday morning, returned Tuesday with a cargo of lumber from Cobourg; left again Tuesday night and returned yesterday with another cargo of lumber from the same place. She left again last night and expects to return again Saturday. Mr. Drewery, the owner of the Fisher, has promised both captain and mate of the schooner a new hat each if the vessel arrives here Saturday. Captain Brotherton is a thorough sailor and is noted for making quick trips.

The schooner Conneaut came into port yesterday under sail and without the assistance of a tug, the captain refusing to pay the established rate for towing. Although the captain has not been here in many years he remembered all of the bra in the river and to show that he had not forgotten them ran his vessel on one near the foot of East Cayuga street, where she remained for some time. The vessel was not damaged, but he sailors who were obliged to heave her off swore like troopers.
