MARINE INTELLIGENCE.

The tug Easton and four barges, lumber laden, arrived from Ottawa this afternoon, en route to Oswego.

The tug Eleanor, (Capt. Hurley) and barges Ludon and Bloomer, leave for Ottawa to load timber. Over $500 has been spent in fitting out the boats.

The schr. Cora W. Post, (Capt. Cornelius) sprung a leak while lying at Richardson's dock yesterday loaded with sand. Her cargo had to be discharged.

There are nearly half a million bushels of grain in barges afloat in the Lachine Canal. This grain is from Kingston and the owners are waiting for ocean Ïtramps,Ó which do not seem to be in a hurry to put into Montreal.

The schrs. Nassau, O.M. Bond, J.R. Noyes, Belle Mitchell and Jessie Scarth, have been chartered in Chicago to carry 22,000 bushels of corn each to Kingston. The rate was quoted at 4  cents, and it was claimed that some charters were made at even a better figure.
