Coulthurst & Macphie's wharf - The barge Minnesota left for Montreal with 21,477 bush. wheat.

Montreal Transportation Company's wharf - Tug Charlotte arrived yesterday with barges Montreal, Cayuga and Arthur.

Messrs. James Swift & Co.'s wharf - The steamers Passport and Corsican and props. Bristol and Georgian passed up; schr. Gatineau left for the Rideau Canal with a general cargo; tug Admiral D.D. Porter coaled here this morning.

Holcomb & Stewart's wharf - The prop. Ocean, from Milwaukee, lightened 4,300 bush. wheat; and prop. Argyle, from Milwaukee, lightened 4,000 bush. wheat, and both proceeded to Montreal this morning. These vessels were detained by the block in the Welland Canal.

Quick Work - The prop. Enterprise arrived here on Saturday morning, with 20,662 bush. corn, and commenced to unload at No. 2 Elevator at 1 o'clock p.m. The whole of her cargo was shipped on board two barges by twenty minutes past four - thus taking only 3 hours and twenty minutes to unload. This is the quickest time on record, and it could have been done in three hours, but for the fact that a second barge had to be filled, and time was wasted in getting it ready.
