The schooner Clara Youell, commanded by Capt. Oliver, with coal from Oswego, for Crawford & Co., was caught in the strong nor' eastern of Sunday night, and had a lively time. Two of her jibs were carried away, and her main gaff was broken, but she weathered the blow, and sailed into port here late yesterday afternoon.

Swift's wharf: steamer Aletha, Picton and bay ports.

The M.T. Co.'s tug Jessie Hall is in the government dry dock undergoing general repairs.

The barges of Portsmouth were moved to the M.T. Co. wharves by the tug Bronson.

M.T. company elevator: S.S. Fairmount from Fort William, with 86,000 bushels of wheat.

The steamer Marshall cleared from the M.T. company elevator for Duluth last evening.

Work is steadily progressing on Craig's new wharf and the old slip is being filled in.

The schooner Clara Youell, which arrived yesterday afternoon at Crawford's wharf, brought the last coal that Oswego had for shipment. The coal business at both Oswego and Charlotte will be hurt considerably by the difficulty in the coal regions.

Comparisons were made with writings and signatures in possession of the family and others, and in no instance could any trace of resemblance be found.
