Shortages - The schooner Florida, from the west, ran short on Saturday 157 bushels on a cargo of grain; and another vessel fell short 60 bushels on Monday. These shortages are disastrous to vessel interests and to the port. Something should be done on our local forwarders' part to check the Western rascality.
