p.2 Ottawa, Oct. 15th - A barge laden with lumber, and owned by Mr. Easton, of this city, has sunk in the Grenville Canal. She had 200,000 feet of deals on board. She is being towed back to the city for repairs.

The owner of the steam tug Peerless, recently sunk near Merrickville, has entered an action for damages against the owner of the Olive.

The steambarge Adventure, of Kingston, ran into and totally demolished the swing bridge over the canal at Cornwall on Wednesday last. The Adventure had in tow a heavily laden barge, to which may be attributed the cause of the accident. Discovering when too late to stop the headway of the barge that the bridge was not to be swung the steamer was forced through the bridge. A gang of men will be put on at once to make the necessary repairs.
