The steamer Tagona will arrive from Montreal and discharge 2,000 bushels of damaged grain at Richardsons' elevator.

The only arrival reported at the M.T. Co.'s elevator was the tug Mary P. Hall, from Montreal, with two light barges.

Swift's: steambarge Reliance, from Sodus with coal; steamer Aletha from bay points; steamer Dundurn due up today.

The schooner Ford River is being laid up for the winter. Capt. Chauncey Daryeau had a most successful season with the vessel.

The steamer Haddington is at present loading package freight at Sarnia for Fort William. She will load grain at Fort William for Thorold for storage.

Owing to the heavy wind, the steambarge Navajo, unloading coal at the Kingston foundry, was, this morning, forced to go into Richardsons' slip for protection. All the smaller boats out had to run for shelter.

p.5 News of the World - The steel steamer North Star, of the Mutual Transit line of Buffalo, was sunk in Lake Huron in collision with a sister ship, the Northern Queen. The steamers collided in a dense fog while off Port Sanilac.

p.6 Incidents of the Day - The steamer Windsor arrived light from Montreal.

The steambarge Reliance had quite a stormy trip over from Sodus Point on Wednesday night. The wind was blowing a gale and the waves were very high. The sturdy little craft made the trip in good time and stood the heavy weather well. She arrived at Swift's this morning with a cargo of coal.

The Badger State Sold.

Detroit, Nov. 26th - Deputy United States Marshall Taylor yesterday sold the steamer Badger State at auction to W.H. Gatfield, Sandwich, for $8,650. The Badger State was bought last spring by the Badger State Transportation company, Detroit, from Henry Loud, Oscoda, and $4,000 had to be paid on the purchase price. A little more than a year ago the Badger State received about $18,000 of repairs at Bay City including a thorough rebuilding. She was built in 1862, and is 213 feet long. She now is tied up in the River Rouge.
