The schooner Acacia, which left Oswego last Friday, arrived at Crawford's wharf this morning. She had to seek shelter during Saturday's storm, and since then the wind was so light that the schooner could make little headway.

In trying to make Swift & company's wharf this morning the steamer Corsican ran into the government dry dock so dense was the fog that the pilot could not see the harbor front. By the aid of a pike pole, the steamer was able to feel her way down to Swift's wharf.

Delayed by the Fog - The steamer Toronto was nearly four hours late in arriving on her east-bound trip this morning. The heavy fog which hung over the harbor kept the big steamer at anchor off Nine Mile Point until the sun burst forth shortly before eight o'clock. Aboard the steamer was a distinguished party, comprising Lady Minto and family. There was also a large passenger list.
