p.1 General Paragraphs - The steamer Hero was laid up today, after a very successful season, by W. Hazlett, chief engineer.

MARINE INTELLIGENCE.

It blew a living gale from the west last night. Luckily there were no vessels out.

The schr. Kate is still moored at Presqu'Isle. She has a cargo of barley for Oswego. As there is no insurance the vessel will not take any chances on bad weather.

When the schr. Acacia ran into this port a couple of days ago her crew were hired over again for the trip. Each man was given $15 for the trip. The vessel went to Oswego and back in four days.

p.2

MARINE INTELLIGENCE.

Apparently, Capt. John McCummiskey says, there is a great disparity between the weather down here and the weather on the upper lakes. Up there it is very stormy and cold. A week ago today the weather was very severe on the lakes.

The str. Lorelei is now pulled out at Davis' shipyard. She will be lengthened.

The tug Nellie Reid brought a barge up from Montreal to undergo repairs at Davis' dry-dock.

The tug Peerless towed a stick of timber up to the penitentiary dock, this morning, to be used in repairing it.

The schr. Queen of the Lakes has arrived over from Oswego with a cargo of coal for S. Anglin and Mr. Grimshaw. Joseph Hackett will start today to unload the vessel.

The schr. Denmore has been given a place in the M.T. Co.'s slip at the foot of Queen street. A big gang of men are working on her and in the course of a few days she will be all finished.

Davis' ship yard is a busy scene just now. The steambarge Freemason and str. Maud are employing a lot of men. Mr. Davis has enough outside work on hand to keep him going all winter. Forty or fifty men will be kept steadily employed here.
