When the steamer Argyle arrived from Sodus at Charlotte on Tuesday night at eleven o'clock deputy United States marshal Burns seized the craft on a claim made by the New York Central railroad company for $275 for wharfage. Former deputy marshal D.J. Scholl was placed in charge of the steamer as shipping master until the matter could be adjusted.
Capt. George O'Brien immediately held a conference with several representatives of the company at Charlotte, and it was soon decided to pay over to the United States officials enough money to satisfy the demand. This was accordingly done, and the staunch steamer with 300 passengers was soon speeding on her way to Toronto.
