WHERE'S THE ACADIA?
Toronto, Nov. 11th - The propeller Acadia, owned by Mr. McKay, Hamilton, and carrying about 20,000 bushels of wheat, left Fort William last Wednesday, and has not been reported at the Sault, though it should have been there within thirty six hours at the longest. The propeller was out in the big storm of Wednesday and Thursday, and grave fears are entertained for her safety. The vessel and cargo were both insured. The captain of the missing propeller is Clifford, of St. Catherines, and the purser Parkhill, of Hamilton. The boat is valued at $25,000. The owners have not given up hope of her safety. They think she may have reached some port for shelter where there is no telegraphic communication.
The tug Walker reached the M.T. company's dock this morning from Montreal with four barges, light.
The schr. Tradewind arrived in last night with a cargo of apples for Montreal, and will start for that port tonight in tow of the tug Walker.
The steambarge Glengarry cleared from the M.T. company's dock last night, having in tow the barges Jennie and Dorchester, bound for Oswego. The Glengarry goes on to Charlotte, N.Y., to load coal for the company's dock here.
The schr. Singapore, bound for the M.T. company's dock with a cargo of peas, anchored off Swift's wharf last evening to await the abatement of the gale now blowing. On her trip to Kingston the Singapore met with very rough weather, having had her bulwarks washed away and other damages inflicted.
The steamer Monteagle, which went aground on Four Mile Point, on Monday night, was lightened of 4,500 bushels of her cargo of wheat by one of the M.T. Co.'s floating elevators yesterday afternoon and reached this port safely yesterday evening. She was laden with 53,000 bushels of wheat, shipped from Duluth to this port.
