p.2 Raising a Barque - The Boston Marine Company, which has been so successful in raising vessels, have employed the tug Relief to make a commencement towards floating the hull of the barque John Rae, which was sunk off the Ducks a few years ago. The barque was sunk in deep water, and some difficulty was experienced in getting at the site of the wreck. When she went down the John Rae was valued at $20,000. A suspicious looking craft had been sighted hovering about the vicinity of the Ducks for some days past, and fears were entertained of a terrible Fenian cruiser having broken loose; but the terror has dwindled down into the above tame fact, as tame as many others connected with the various Fenian scares.

The American Steamers - The first boat of the season of the above line of steamers, the Ontario, touched here last night on her way to Charlotte, and the Bay State passed down for Ogdensburgh this morning. These steamers are very late in coming out this summer, the first of the line having been expected here about the 15th of May.

Emigrants - The steamer Kingston passed this evening with over 400 emigrants on board, chiefly Norwegians, on their way to the Western States.

Montreal, June 25th - A raft laden with staves belonging to Calvin and Breck, of Kingston, was swept over the big pitch in the Lachine rapids and now lies foundered upon the rocks.
