The statement In yesteiday'- Bulli:
w.v. that the wharf-master had trouble
Willi tlie Kicamcr commonwealth was a
mistake, and we hasten to correct it.
We are informed by the wharl'-uiastcr
that ho has always paid her wharfage 011
demand. We were led Into thu mistake
by another matter which we will explain.
On her last trip up the Commonwealth
was blown against a wood boat at Pndu
cah, aud afterward, dining tint same
gale, the wood boat sunk. 'iiu boat be
longed to Mr. Vost ot Metropolis, nml it
contained a tew staves belonging to an
other party. The sinking did not occur
until after tho Commonwealth lelt
and tho bill of damages was
not presented until she arrived at this
port ou her return from Cincinnati nt 8
o'clock, Tuesday night last. Then the
owner appeared with his hill ol five hun
dred dollas In hand and an attachment
lu his pocket. Tho bill was considered
exorbitant aud the captain oiled a com
promise, which was refused and tho
attachment served. The boat remained
during the next day taking 500 tons of
freight, and during that ;tlmo better
counsels prevailed, the compromise was
etlrctcd aud the boat released.
