p.1 Goderich Tidings - Nov. 16th - The steamer Wexford lay here all Sunday, for the shovellers to take the cargo of 17,000 bushels of wet wheat out of her, to ship by rail to some kiln drying establishment. On her downward trip last week, to our port, the Wexford struck some obstacle at the Soo, and a hole about six feet long was stove in her. She will leave for Owen Sound to get the damage repaired, and if possible, return to Port Arthur.



The steamer Stranger cleared this morning for Gananoque with freight.

The dredge Trenton, in the government dry dock, cleared today for Trenton.

The steamer Alexandria laid up at Picton on Saturday. The vessel had a most successful season.

The steambarge Waterlily arrived from Montreal this morning, with freight for Folger's wharf.

Several grain boats from Fort William are expected to arrive at the M.T. Co.'s elevator, the latter part of the week.

High winds have been a great drawback to navigation, the past few days. The schooners tied up at the Point for a week, came into port this morning for provisions.

Swift's wharf: Owing to the high wind, the steamer Aletha did not clear for bay ports until midnight. The steamer Belleville was held at Cobourg over night, and was expected to reach here today, as the weather is much clearer. The steamer Reliance called last night on her way west. The steamer Dundurn is due from the east today. The schooner Cornelia will clear for Oswego if weather is favorable.
