p.3 Adding to Breakwater - at Cape Vincent.
p.5 In Marine Circles - The schooner Abbie L. Andrews arrived in port, Thursday morning, from Oswego, with a cargo of coal for Sowards.
-The steamer Dundurn was expected up from Montreal today with freight.
-The freight service will soon be wound up now. Marine insurance expires the last day of November, and the underwriters will not take the risk after that, so they hustle to finish their trips before the first of the month.
Unloading Coal - James Sowards, local coal dealer, is successfully operating the McMyler whirlie, a steam scoop for unloading coal. The machine is being operated on the schooner Mary Ann Lydon and, while not altogether new in this city, this is the first time it has been successfully operated from a schooner. The steam barge Jeska was unloaded today, and her three hundred tons were transferred in six hundred minutes. On account of the Jeska being so shallow, and her hatches so small, only the half-ton scoop could be used. If the ton scoop could have been used, her cargo would have been unloaded in half the time. Eighteen tons can be unloaded with a three ton scoop in ten hours, in almost half the time hand shovellers could accomplish the task. The steambarge Jeska will clear tonight for Oswego.
-The sloop Laura D. arrived at Fisher's Brewery, Portsmouth, from Bay ports, with a cargo of barley.
