Kingston, Ont., May 29. -- The barge ARTHUR, laden with 17,500 bushels of corn from this port for Montreal, struck a rock in the Galoup rapids, St. Lawrence River, and sunk in 13 feet of water. The barge can be raised but the grain will be a total loss. The Kingston & Montreal Forwarding Company's tug REGINALD had the barge in tow.
