The steambarge Jeska arrived in port, on Thursday morning, in tow of the steamers Sowards, Randall and Hinckley, which went to Oswego to bring the stranded vessel back to Kingston for repairs. It will be remembered that the steambarge Jeska lost her rudder while on the trip to Kingston and was left stranded for two hours with a heavy gale blowing on the lake. Some of the members of the crew state that the reports were much exaggerated. At the time of the accident there were two other steamers in sight, and for that reason there was not great danger. The barge will be placed in Davis' dry dock for repairs.

The steamer Dundurn went east on Thursday morning.

The steamer Majestic was due, west bound, on Thursday.
