The tug Glide and barge Alberta were in the government dry-dock yesterday. Caulking was necessary.

The tug Jessie Hall and barge Corncrib are now in the government dry-dock. The tug will have a stern band adjusted, and the barge will be caulked.

A. Nickle arrived last night from Montreal in the interest of the insurance companies for the cargo of the schr. Glenora. The wheat was partly insured through Mr. Nickle, Capt. Parsons is for the insurance companies on the hull, while Capt. T. Donnelly will look after the owners' interests in both respects. It was decided that the vessel's cargo be discharged at once, when the Glenora will be dry-docked for inspection. The matter of unloading will be a slow process as the damaged wheat will be separated from the good while unloading.

General Paragraphs - The schr. Hanlan is in Oswego. She went over on Monday with a load of grain for Richardson & Son and will return to this port light.
