p.3 Marine Notes

The harbour has presented a busy appearance for several days past, on account of the large number of arrivals both of grain and lumber. The freight steamers are not doing very much at present, however, but are looking to better times soon.

Montreal Transportation Co. - The schr. L.J. Clark arrived from Chicago with 21,620 bushels barley. The Ostrich should have been reporting as having barley instead of corn.

James Swift's - The Spartan called this morning from Hamilton, the D.C. West from Westport and the Oswego Belle from Oswego.

Holcomb & Stewart - Arrived - the prop. Europe from Kincardine, which lightened 4,000 bush. wheat, and proceeded to Montreal.

The barge Wheatbin, which went ashore on the rocks in Galop's Rapids, has been hauled out for repairs. She was very severely torn up, and will cost a considerable sum of money to repair her. She was a very staunch vessel, and the repairs now being made will render her stronger than ever.
