She lightened 500 bushels in passing through the Welland Canal. The barge Frontenac takes the Tinney's cargo to Montreal this evening. The sloop Luck's All, from the Bay of Quinte, with 2,100 bushels of wheat and peas, arrived last night at J.H. Henderson's wharf, and discharged. The barges Lyre and Linnet leave the same wharf tonight for Montreal, with 35,000 bushels of wheat and peas, and the tug William arrived with barges Swan and Forth, from Montreal, with 600 tons of pig iron for Chicago. The steamer Osprey passed down last night, touching at Swift's wharf. The propeller Bruno arrived last night at the M.T. Company's wharf from Montreal, with a general cargo for Chicago. She took on board 150 tons of pig iron and passengers.

Grain Freights - Advices from Chicago today report freights firmer, and the demand for vessels fair. The schooner William Young is chartered for Kingston, with wheat, at 10 1/2 cents, which is the market rate.
