MARINE INTELLIGENCE

The schr. Idlewild is loading grain for the Stone Mills.

The tug Bronson, on the ways at the M.T. Co.'s dock for the past few days for repairs and caulking, was pulled off this morning and will winter with the rest of the fleet. The str. Glengarry will be put on for repairs.

A number of Toronto capitalists have been incorporated as the St. Lawrence & Chicago Steam Navigation Company. The steel steamer Rosedale and other vessels have been purchased, and the company proposes to do a general passenger and freight business on the lakes.

The board of steamboat inspectors of Ontario will meet in the city in a few days and discuss the boiler in L.B. Spencer's yacht, the Wherenow. It appears the boiler is of American design, and the question has arisen as to how much pressure it should be allowed to carry.

On Monday evening, during a gale, a yawl boat was lost off the steamer H.A. Calvin, and a skiff was blown off the steamer Johnston. Yesterday the steamer Calvin picked up the yawl and skiff. The str. Pierrepont picked up a lead-coloured skiff floating about the river yesterday near the foot of Wolfe Island.
