The barge Dalhousie is lightening 3,000 bushels of corn at Richardson's elevator.

H. Clark, mate of the schr. Elgin, will leave for B.C. in a few days.

The steambarge Metamora and tow have arrived at Garden Island with timber from the Straits of Mackinac.

The steambarge Indian and consorts have reached Garden Island from Duncan City, Mich., with timber. Commodore Fraser made the round trip in twenty days.

The tug St. Francis was towing the barge Wheat Bin, belonging to the Montreal Transportation Company, in Montreal harbor when an accident occurred. The tug St. Peter with another tow was going the same way as the St. Francis. When opposite Molson's wharf the latter boat ran in the way of the former and the barge laden with peas struck the wharf with such violence that all the joints in her box were instantly opened. She at once began to sink and after all on board had been safely landed, she was towed as rapidly as possible to St. Helen's Island, where, upon nearing shore, she sank. She lies in comparatively shallow water and is in a bad condition. Efforts will be made at once by the Transportation Company to raise the barge, which, with the cargo, is fully insured.
