The schooner Acacia cleared today for Sodus.

The schooner Fabiola arrived at Swift's wharf from Oswego.

The schooner Echo from bay ports discharged a cargo of barley at Richardsons' elevator today.

The tug Nellie Reid with two grain laden barges from Richardsons' elevator cleared today for Montreal.

The steamer James Swift did not arrive from Ottawa until early this morning, being detained by fog.

The tug Hiram Easton and barges are awaiting at Swift's wharf to take the schooner Fabiola's cargo to Smith's Falls.

A mariner stated today that sailors and vessel owners in this vicinity are in a lower state financially this season than for some years. The low freights are accountable for this state of things. Many small vessels running to this port with cargoes are in need of repair but their owners simply cannot afford to have them docked. Instead, they are forced to resort continually to pumping. A few owners had good luck in getting contracts at a good price, but others again were contracted for early in the season at low rates.

p.5 Seeley's Bay - Oct. 25th - ....The steamer Maggie May and barge Dandy arrived Tuesday with a load of salt and coal.

p.7 Driven Ashore & Wrecked - Buffalo, Oct. 26th - The schooner Badger, bound from Cedar River to Menominee with ties, waterlogged when seven miles out of the river. Capt. Aldrich and the crew rescued by fishermen. The vessel was driven ashore, and is now a total loss. She was owned by Green Bay parties, and it is said she was not insured.
