p.1 Damage To the Glenora - The survey of the schr. Glenora has at last been completed. Capt. Parsons, for the insurance company, and Capt. T. Donnelly, for the transportation company, worked most harmoniously together, and during the whole survey, which occupied many days, only had one dispute. This was regarding the vessel's arch. Capt. Taylor was called in on this occasion and decided in favor of Capt. Donnelly. It was agreed that the total damages to the vessel reached $8,000, and the insurance company will be called upon for this amount. The vessel will be refastened and caulked.

HEROES IN OSWEGO
Oswego, N.Y., Dec. 27th - For several days the two keepers of the Beacon light-house here have been imprisoned by the ice. On Sunday they ran up a flag of distress, and a relief party was organized, headed by Capt. Gowan, of the steamer Reliance, and the captain of the schooner Annandale. They started in a small boat, and after a terrific battle of three hours with the ice and waves, succeeded in landing the suffering men. They had been without food for two days.
WINDING IT UP
Buffalo, Dec. 27th - The affairs of the Lake Superior Transit Company are to be wound up and the big corporation after a most successful existence of fifteen years is to be dissolved. The boats ran between Buffalo and Duluth and did a large freight and passenger business. The corporation was formed fifteen years ago by Mr. Washington Bullard, S.D. Caldwell, Mr. E.T. Evans and a few others. Mr. Bullard represented the Union Steamboat Company, Mr. Caldwell the Western Transit Company and Mr. Evans the Anchor Line.
Mr. Caldwell has been present of the Lake Superior Transit Company for two years, and Mr. Evans general manager. Next season the Anchor Line and the Western Transit Company will run their boats separately.
