The steamer Morning Star arrived
at the local harbor from St. Paul last
night at 7:30, just 5 hours behind
schedule time. The delay was occa
sioned owing to the encountering of
an exceedingfly heavy fog near Savan

the boat at an exceedingly low rate
of speed. The big steamer departed
for the north again this afternoon with
the following passengers on board:

refuse to move them. "Every time we
