J. Deroche, sailing on the upper lakes most of the season, is home again.

Can Have A New Trial - Justice Vann, of Syracuse, has decided the motion to revive in the case of Mary Senecal against the Thousand Island steamboat company, limited; the motion to revive is granted without prejudice to proceedings already had, provided that within twenty days a new bond for security for costs be given, to take the place of the old one, in the penalty of $250, with one surety.


Capt. Saunders stripped the schr. Ella Murton of her canvas yesterday.

The schr. Fleetwing arrived in from Oswego this morning with a cargo of coal.

The tugs Jessie Hall and Walker leave today with six barges, grain laden, for Montreal.

The str. Spartan is laid up. Engineer Taylor has just completed the disposal of the engine for the winter.

The prop. St. Magnus, from Fort William, lightened 21,000 bushels of wheat and proceeded to Montreal.

Yesterday was a perfect day, but last night a heavy wind sprung up, an instance of how uncertain this weather is at this season. Small sailing vessels are better off tied to the docks.

The prop. Glengarry dropped the schr. Minnedosa a few miles up the lake last night, came on to the city and got tugs to go after her. It was blowing quite a stiff gale and the boats had all they could do to get into port.

Capt. James Dix gives it as his opinion that not a single one of the American vessels trading on the lakes have cleared more than expenses, while many are out money on the season. This year was an exceptionally hard season for vessels.

The prop. Glengarry and consort Minnedosa arrived in from Fort William this morning, with 80,000 bushels of wheat. The Glengarry was kept back considerably by bad weather, but everything considered made a pretty quick trip.
