The schooner Edward Blake has been pulled off the shore at Presquile by the tug Hiram A. Calvin. She is pretty badly damaged. The tug took her to Mill Point, where she will be hauled out for repairs.

The steambarge Saxon, sunk at Beauharnois Canal, has been raised, and yesterday passed up in tow of the Lady Franklin to Mill Point, where it will be overhauled.

The storm drum has been up for the last thirteen days, no order having been received to take it down. It has proved of great value to mariners.

The season has now closed, as insurance expired yesterday. Vessels will now begin to go into winter quarters, as they now sail at their own risk.
