Today's Marine News.

The schr. Ocean Wave, Belleville, 3,806 bush. fall wheat, has arrived.

A tow of five barges leave for Montreal tonight in charge of the tug Jessie Hall.

The tug D.G. Thomson, with barges Iowa and Oneida, are in port windbound. They cleared yesterday for Charlotte but had to run back.

The steamer City of Belleville has just undergone extensive repairs at this port prior to going into winter service between Prescott and Ogdensburg.

The schr. Sam Cook is now above the water line, her cabin and upper works being entirely out of water. The large hole in her bottom has been temporarily patched and with two steam pumps on board she will be kept afloat on her way to Ogdensburg. With the exception of the hole mentioned she is in excellent condition. It will not require over a week's work on the marine railway to put her in order again.
