Movement of Troops - on Grecian and Spartan.

The Barge Accident at Long Sault - Of the three barges, lately swept into the Long Sault, the Leo, and Argo, lie in the midst of the heavy swell, while the Utility, although in rough water, is grounded near shore, and may therefore be lightened with but little trouble. Her cargo, amounting to 8,000 bushels, was yesterday sold by auction, and was bid up to the respectable price of 24 cents, at which rate Mr. Hodges of the Cornwall Mills secured it. No vessel can reach either the Leo or Argo, and it has in consequence been found necessary to build a pier by which a connection between them and terra firma is made. We are glad to learn that about 10,000 bushels may possibly be saved without damage. There is little chance of the Argo being rescued, but the Utility and Leo are certain to be put afloat again.
