marine Jottings.
The propeller Maine, of the N. T. line,
was the first to enter this port. She ar
rived last Tuesday morning, bound
down, and landed a considerable quan
tity ot freight at Humphrey's dock for
our merchants.
The propeller St. Albans was the first
boat to reach this port from below. She
arrived Tuesday, having on board twenty
tons of freight for this place. She ex
perienced considerable difficulty in
getting through the ice in the lower end
of Lake Huron.
The J. W. Bennett came over from
Mackinaw Tuesday, and remained until
Thursday, when she left with the Francis
Adah In tow. To be in the fashion, she is
being dressed in a suit of new paint,
which will improve her appearance very
much.
The tug Joe D. Dudley, of Mar
quette, put into this port Tuesday night,
and remained until Wednesday forenoon,
when she left for her home port.
The St. Joseph arrived Wednesday
morning early and landed a number of
passengers and a large quantity of
freight at Humphrey's dock. Like the
St. Albans, she had trouble in passing
through the ice in the lower dud of the
lake, but by persistent efforts she suc
ceeded. The two iuner buoys to mark the
entrance to the harbor were put into po-
siiiou last Monday evening, but they
have been receiving rough treatment
from the floating ice, Tuesday evening
being carried off to the eastward of the
channel. They arete again set, and
Wednesday were carried to the west side
of the channel. We think, however,
that the ice has left so that il will trouble
them no more this season.
The schooner Francis Adah left
Thursday, for St. Helena, loaded with
staves.
The'schooner Dreadnaught finished
fitting out the first of the week, and
Wednesday went over to Bois Blanc and
took gravel aboard for ballast. She
looks very much improved iu appear
ance. The propeller Bobert Holland reach
ed this port Thursday morning and land
ed at McArthur, Smith & Co.'s dock,
where she unloaded her freight for this
port. She went into Duncan before
landing here. We understand she will
run in connection with the Marine City,
in opposition the Sr. Joe.
The schooner Bessie Boalt arrived
Thursday afternoon after a cargo of cedar
posts, and was the first vessel in the
river after a load. There being no tug
at hand she sailed in and with a good
stiff breeze blowing, came in flying.
The gehoonor A. P. Nichols arrived
about noon Tliursuay, and unucrtooK in
the absence of any tug to sail in. but in
doing so drifted on to the east bank ot
the channel, and became hard aground.
The masters of the tugs Eva English and
Bismarck learning of the situation, went
to her assistance and succeeded after con
