The Steamer Armstrong Is Without A Captain.

Ogdensburg, N.Y., March 3rd - The ferry steamer Armstrong, engaged in ferrying cars between Ogdensburg and Prescott, is tied up, owing to the inability of the owners to obtain a captain. The recently organized lodge of masters and pilots have adopted a scale for masters of $100 per month, and this the owners of the Armstrong are unwilling to pay. Capt. S.V. Anderson, who has been in command of the steamer, refuses to take her out again unless the union scale is paid, and all other members of the union are by its laws prohibited from taking the place of a fellow member. As the company refuses to pay the salary asked, and the members of the association declare that none of them, and they include practically all licensed navigators in this vicinity, will fill the vacancy, the issue remains in doubt.
