From Okasi.–This past Tuesday, the whaler Othello came to port, and that is the very first ship from Okhotsk [Okasi], and it was from it that the news about ships in that area. Fine were the things heard about the ships in that sea. There are many whales [kohola] there and there are no great storms. All the barrels on this ship were full, and on the 23rd of September it left that place. The ships this season are very blessed, and that is a good thing, for us all.
