The tug Glide leaves this evening for Montreal with six barges, having 110,000 bush. wheat, 125 tons soapstone and 75 tons phosphate.

Mr. W. McRossie had a raft of oak and pine broke up in the harbor by the gale. He will probably secure all the pine, but will lose some of the oak.

The Chicago Board of Marine Underwriters have advanced the tariff on grain cargo insurance to 85 cents to Lake Ontario ports and $1.00 to Ogdensburg.

The schr. J.R. Benson had 800 bushels of her grain damaged. She was discharged at Portsmouth. Capt. Taylor and Capt. J. Donnelly will hold a survey.

The schr. Jessie H. Breck is reported to be ashore four miles east of Ashtabula, near which it is thought she was loading timber. She lies in seven feet of water.

Capt. Porte, of the str. Varuna, said that he never experienced such rough weather on the bay as that of Thursday afternoon. It was with the greatest difficulty that the Varuna could make her landing.

The str. Chieftain, on Thursday, was lying with a Port Hope raft off Nicholson's Island. The wind, veering round from the south to west, broke up the latter and the timber drifted to the shore at Wellington. It can be recovered.

The schr. Anna M. Foster, Capt. Ryan, light, was blown high and dry on the north shore of the channel, a little west of Telegraph Island, near Belleville. It is thought by those who saw the stranded vessel that she must have dragged her anchor, as her stern appears to be on shore more than any other part. The Foster is a Kingston craft.
