p.1 Marine Paragraphs - The str. Jessie Bain was towed to Clayton from here by the str. Pierrepont last week. She will receive some repairs during the winter and will be put on the Clayton-Alexandria Bay route as soon as navigation opens in the spring.

The str. Hall arrived at noon on Sunday at Port Colborne from Buffalo, bound for Oswego, light, to go into winter quarters. This was the only boat expected going through the canal this fall and navigation may be considered closed at that point. The following boats are laid up at Port Colborne: str.
