MARINE INTELLIGENCE.

The schr. B.W. Folger is loading lumber for Oswego.

The tug Thompson arrived last night from Montreal with 4 light barges.

The str. Acadia left Montreal this morning for Chicago. This is her first trip for the season.

The prop. Myles and 5 of the Canadian Pacific Railway and Beatty line of schooners got ice bound off Thunder Cape and a watch was kept on them until Saturday when they got free. They reached Port Arthur safely.

The str. Alexandria which left here last night went ashore on a rock near Jackstraw light about 2 miles below Gananoque. She will have to be lightened before an attempt is made to get her off. The rock she ran on is the only one in that part of the river mentioned. Early this morning Capt. Smith arrived in the city and was rowed to Garden Island by T. Clancy. He engaged the str. Hiram A. Calvin to go to the assistance of the Alexandria. She left about 7:00. After the Alexandria ran on the rock the str. Princess Louise ran alongside her and then went to Gananoque. The steamer is in a bad condition being about 1 1/2 feet out forward. She was going at full speed when she struck. Her cargo is a heavy one. It is thought she sustained a great deal of damage.
