The steamer Phoenix, which unloaded at Detroit, had 17,000 bushels of wet corn out of her cargo of 78,000, the result of a leak caused by storms on Lake Michigan. The damaged grain has been sold to the starch factory at Prescott.

The Richelieu directors announce that they have appealed the Cape Breton case to the English privy council, and express the conviction that they will get a decision in their favor against the Dominion Coal company.

Canadian Boat Damaged Vessel At Lorraine.

Buffalo, N.Y., Oct. 30th - The Pioneer Steamship company has filed a libel against the steamer Turret Crown in the office of the clerk of the United States district court. The libellant is the owner of the American merchant steamer Martin Mullen. The Turret Crown is a Canadian boat. The libellant alleges that on Oct. 25th last the Mullen was at the port of Loraine, Ohio, and that the Turret Crown in passing up the harbor improperly steered from her course and collided with the Mullen, striking her on the starboard about thirty or forty feet from her stem and damaging the vessel in the sum of $6,000. As the Turret Crown does not come to this port, no process for her seizure was asked. It is said that the owners of the Turret Crown have agreed to appear and give a bond in the sum of $9,000 for any damages that may be awarded.
