p.3 Accident - We learn that Captain I.H. Radford is laid up in Milwaukee with one of his legs broken. He was running out of Chicago with the Prince Alfred, and had to put into Milwaukee on account of a gale. By a breaking of a portion of the rigging, the limb was fractured.
Vessels are generally being stripped and laid up for the winter. Several belonging to Kingston are still making trips across the lake, but this will not last long.
Messrs. Calvin & Breck will during the winter build a barge at Garden Island, having a carrying capacity of about 30,000 bushels. It will be 167 feet long with 30 feet beam.
Hon. A.C. Mattoon, of Oswego, will have built during the winter at that port a propeller, which will be 110 feet keel, 120 feet over all, and 20 feet beam. She will be run as a daily boat between Oswego and Alexandria Bay from June to September 10th, and carry freight during the remainder of the season.
