p.2 Case Further Enlarged - The charge of theft against two boys, who stole blocks off the schooner Fleetwing in March last, was further adjourned in the police court this morning. The captain of the vessel was in the harbor, trying to reach port. The storm, however, retarded him, and the magistrate decided not to await his arrival, and so adjourned the case.



The schooner Fleetwing, coal laden from Charlotte, arrived today at Soward's wharf.

Crawford's wharf: schooners Acacia from Fairhaven and Tradewind from Oswego, both coal laden.

The river and harbor bill as passed by Congress carries an appropriation of $20,000 for Ogdensburg, $48,000 for Cape Vincent, and $51,000 for Oswego.

Capt. Robert Cooney, who for years commanded the steamer Garden City, has been offered the command of the steamer New York, of Kingston.

The schooner Eliza White, which was run ashore in Brakey's Bay, was released last night by the Donnelly wrecking company, and arrived here today to unload her cargo of coal for the Rathbun company.

Swift's wharf: The steamer Hamilton arrived last night from Hamilton on the first trip of the season, and cleared this morning for the west with a big load of freight; schooner Falconer arrived this morning from Oswego with coal.

On Saturday night the steamer Aletha struck a tow of logs, taken along by the tug Rescue, a few miles west of Deseronto, and had a narrow escape from being sunk. Fortunately no serious damage was done, but those on board had quite a shock. The steamer's bow was slightly damaged. The captain of the steamer says there was no light displayed on the tow, which caused the collision.
