p.2 First Cargo For Montreal - Messrs. Glassford, Jones & Co's tug Ottawa left yesterday afternoon with a large tow of barges laden with grain for Montreal. The schooners Two Brothers and Ontario, belonging to the same firm, arrived yesterday, bringing between them 20,800 bushels of wheat. Several of the elevators were busy unloading cargoes of grain yesterday, which is fast being put aboard barges for transhipment.

The Barque Arabia - An error occured in yesterday's News in giving the name of the barque Arabia as the vessel which struck in coming out of Port Hope harbor, laden with wheat. It should have been the schooner Caroline Marsh, the Arabia having arrived direct from Port Dalhousie without touching at Port Hope.
