Marine News

The season is not quite over, as we believe several vessels more are expected. The elevators are silent in the meantime, however, and a good many barges have been laid up for the winter.

Montreal Transportation Company's wharf - The tug Glide arrived with six barges, and the tug H.F. Bronson left with barges Cleveland, 19,000 bush. corn; Waverly, 12,000 bush. wheat; Fortitude, 9,473 bush. wheat.

James Swift & Co.'s wharf - The prop. California passed down, and the Dromedary passed up. The steam-barge Nile arrived from Rideau Canal with 500 boxes cheese and 100 tubs butter from Mr. Morton's factory.

p.3 Accident To The Steamer Alexandra - The steamboat Alexandra, which plies between Trenton and Montreal, calling at intermediate ports, met with an accident on Saturday evening. In heading upstream in order to get alongside the wharf her starboard wheel dipped too deep, and, owing to the great pressure of water the wheel broke. The fracture was so serious that the wheel could not be repaired here. During Sunday the wheel was taken off, and the Alexandra proceeded to Montreal with the port wheel only working, where the necessary repairs will be made. [Morrisburgh Courier]
