Gathered in the Local Harbor. The barge Oak Leaf was taken to Little Sturgeon on Friday where she loaded a hold of hay and was brought back here the same night. The cargo was completed at the Lyon wharf on Saturday. The same night the craft was taken in tow by the tug John Leathem, Capt. T. Ewing, for delivery at Chicago. The Leathem also had the stone-laden barge Jos. L. Hurd in charge, which was to be taken to Racine. Word was received from Capt. Ewing Monday stating that he was obliged to run into Sheboygan for shelter from the big sea, the principal danger being in the boats getting loaded down with ice, the spray freezing as it falls on the decks.
