Marine Notes

The harbour still continues quiet, and business does not seem to be coming at all. The arrivals are not so plentiful as they ought to be at this season, and freights are very low, averaging from 5 to 5 1/2 cents from Milwaukee.

Holcomb & Stewart's Wharf - Arrived - The schr. William Raynor, from Toledo, 13,600 bush. corn.

Montreal Transportation Co. - Arrived - The schr. Wave Crest, from Oakville, 10,609 bush. wheat.

Jas. Swift's Wharf - The steamer Spartan passed down from Hamilton. The Oswego Belle called from Oswego. The steambarge Van Allen called from Chatham.

The steambarge Nile was hauled out at the marine railway to get a new shaft put in.

In Ordinary - The schooners Madeira and Jamaica, which arrived recently, have gone into ordinary. The schooners W.I. Preston and Thos. Simms "tied up" some time since, and are now waiting for better freights. [Oswego Times]

Schooner Gazelle - The schooner Gazelle, which stove a hole in her starboard bow and sunk at the island dock yesterday p.m., was relieved of her deck load of lumber, which enabled her to float, and was then towed over to Goble & McFarlane's. As soon as the Marysburg comes out of dry dock, she will take her place for repairs. [ib]

Steamer Cygnet, when near the foot of Wolfe Island with an excursion party from Alexandria Bay to Kingston on the Queen's Birthday, broke the connecting rod of her engine and was towed back to Clayton by the steamer Junita, much to the disappointment of the large party on board. [Clayton Independent]

The new steamer Armenia, which has been built at Picton, will soon be ready for business. The Beaver thinks the best route for her would be from Napanee to Cape Vincent and returning daily, stopping at intermediate ports.

Brockville - The schooner Arctic, which had a cargo of corn from Chicago to Morrisburg, arrived in tow of the tug Hiram A. Calvin, having 2,800 bushels of her cargo which had been damaged by the vessel springing a leak while in the Straits of Mackinaw. The damaged corn has been purchased by a party in Kingston, where it will be discharged. The tug Hiram A. Calvin, from Montreal, is loading with a quantity of withes at the railway wharf for Kingston. Tug Louise passed up with two loaded barges in tow. They belong to the Rideau Canal, and will enter the Canal at Kingston, having had to proceed up the St. Lawrence owing to the high water in the Ottawa River.
