Dec, 20th.—The steamor .drmstrotig left MoiTistowo for Ogdeusburg at 6 a. m. to-day, to. ferry, there duriug the day and return at right, and. do, up the work here. She will coutinue this routine so long as the river is free of ice. The Cresco will run on the day ferry here as long as she can, then we will have to depend on the old time line, of Wells & Ayers, better kuown perhaps as the \Water Police\ qfMorristown, who are said to be well up in their business. The woutfded man passed rather a restless night, but the Dr. docs not think it anything serious. Capt. Wm. Wells returned on Satur- day night all right, after ono of the most severe seasons on record. Henry 2Pbkey, car inspector, was transferred to Caffnage some time since and to-day is irnovipg; his household ef- fects; to that place. . £ater.—The Armstrong returned to this place, aud will ferry as usual till farther notice. There is a rumor that we aire to have another railroad to this point some time in the near future and in connection with a line of fast steam- ers riming to Oswego and intermediate points. Prof. Phillips will probably givo an- other series of lessons hero after the holidays. There seems to be a grout variety of opinions, as to the probabil- ity of the removal of the steamer A rm- strong from the ferry here, aud giving her a place at Ogdensburg. The facts are, so far as can be learned, that Capt. Lyons wants the change made and has caused the great amount of talk in order to give MiG'arthy Brothers 'owners of the Transit) a grand bluff, in order to effect an early purchase of the Tr.ansit. The H, W. & O. have been ready for the change for some time, but the C. P . R. people stepped in with a message, saying that they had better be eonsnlted before the Armstrong WAS taken away from Morristown. It is very generally conceded that as soon as (he Kemptville branch is completed and the other ar- rangements made the change will take place, but not before the C. P. R. is ready for it. The importation of poultry lias not nearly come up to the big day of last year, whieh amounted to 21 ear loads, containing 367,360 pounds, and 1,100 oilSU^HS,^^' toMr - an \ rra ' This year there wus received at tlie cus- tom house the following amount: 16 cars eontaiiuujj 266,662 pounds, 815 head live fowls,valued at $21,995 leuvo- itig thousauds.of pounds iti the hands, of tlie prpducer.s tl*at t would not bring any price they would accept. The prices aiked in the morning was 15 cents pur pound and at noon the selling began at 9 cents and gradually fulling off to 7 cts. when the sellers withdrew the ballance of stock unsold. There was quite a sharp dispute over three cars of poultry in Hrockviile one day last week, the owners wishing to transfer it to tl.e 0. & L. O. at Ogdens- burg. Mr. .Houston of the C. P. R. tried to force them over his connections first by charging 10 cents per cwt. wharfage if transferred, thereby threat- uing the Belleville and'IVatifit with a withdrawal of the C, P. bu iness_ if eidi- er of them handled the freight. The result was that the 6. T. R. gave a rate to Boston, and guaranteed'the arrivi.l, on time, and the goods went by Mon- treal. There is nothing 1 ik.- having your own way. x. B. c. It.
