Capt. Roys takes immediate command of the steamer Aletha.

The steambarge Westford will likely clear tomorrow for Oswego.

The schooner Acacia is loading feldspar at Richardsons' wharf for Sodus.

The small steamer Belle Ritchie, partially sunk in Anglin's Bay recently, has not been raised. It will be allowed to remain for the present as Capt. Roys has no need for it.

The Alexandria Bay Sun is informed that Com. Louis Luchenback, owner of the fast yacht Now Then, has recently purchased another yacht, which he will have on the river the coming season. It is the Papoose, eighty-seven feet long with nine feet beam, and a record of twenty-eight miles per hour. The yacht was purchased in New York.

p.2 Incidents of the Day - The steamer Westford cleared from Crawford's wharf this morning for Oswego.

A new cylinder is being made for the steamer Islander. It may not be finished in time, and if not the steamer New Island Wanderer will have to go on the Clayton-Alexandria Bay route, and the steamer America on the Cape Vincent route.

p.6 May Be Done On Monday - The Donnelly Wrecking and Salvage company was to have made an attempt to recover the lost anchor which became fouled in the suction pipe last fall, but owing to the stormy weather the venture had to be postponed. It was decided to make an attempt today, but again the weather proved unfavorable. If the water is undisturbed on Monday it is probable that a diver will be sent below to release the anchor.
