-The Fire Fly - The steamer Fire Fly - Ald. Moodie's old craft - took her final leave of Toronto Bay yesterday morning in tow of a tug for the south side of the lake, where she is not likely to be annoyed for some time by the nocturnal visits of sheriff's officers. It appears that this craft had been in the possession of the sheriff's men for several months, but by some inexplicable manner they were conveyed on a fishing expedition to the island last week, and when they returned to their post they were ordered off at the point of a shillielah. Hence the departure of the boat from Canadian waters.
