Capt. James Quinn, master and owner of the schooner Jessie Drummond, of Port Hope, has been fined $500 by collector of customs J.H. Cooper for a violation of the United States navigation laws. It is claimed by the officials that he left Oswego in charge of the Drummond without first having secured clearance papers. The offence was committed on Sunday, May 6th. Capt. Quinn will appeal to the secretary of the United States treasury for a remission of the fine on the grounds that the violation was entirely unintentional. It is believed that secretary Gage will remit the amount, when the circumstances have been fully explained.
