Capt. Dobbin, who returned yesterday from Port Burwell, gives the following marine items:- The Canadian barque GLOBE, which we reported, a few days since, as being ashore at Port Bruce, with a cargo of railroad ties, has gone to piece and is an entire wreck.
The brig BURLINGTON, which had been sent to the assistance of the GLOBE, and is bringing away her cargo, or as much of it as could be saved, has also gone ashore, and would prove a total wreck.
