MARINE PARAGRAPHS.

It is probable that the refusal of the department of marine to place a fog horn or whistle on Indian Point will be reconsidered, as it is a most dangerous point, and lake mariners are asking for protection.

The tug McArthur will go to the upper lakes for wrecking purposes. She expects to leave today. Requests have been made to have her go to the rescue of the steamer Isaac May at Tobermory.

The steambarge Mattawan, of Montreal, went ashore near Richmondville, Mich., yesterday, and is badly wrecked. Her crew has been safely taken off. The barge Gibraltar, in tow of the Mattawan, is ashore at White Rock, with her bottom out and probably wrecked beyond hope. Her crew was also taken off.
