MARINE INTELLIGENCE.

Clearancres: schr. Freeman, bay ports; John McBride, Deseronto, lumber.

The schr. Singapore is loading 325 tons of phosphate at Richardson's for Cleveland.

The str. Erin arrived at the M.T. Co.'s dock at eleven o'clock last night and was relieved of 50,000 bush. of wheat at six o'clock this morning.

Arrivals: str. Erin with consort Maggie, Chicago, 50,000 bush. corn; tug Glide, Montreal, three barges; prop. Argonaut, Chicago, 45,000 bush. wheat and rye; prop. Escanaba, Chicago, 50,000 bush. corn; str. Corsican, Montreal; str. Passport, Toronto.

It is the general impression that the cause of the accident to the str. Columbian, on the Cedar rapids, was the breaking of the manilla rope, part of the steering gear of the boat. Old mariners hold a different view of the accident. They claim that it was caused by the wheel of the steamer being too deep for the rapids. New wheels for the boat are expected to arrive in a few days. The risk taken by the company in running the new boat down the rapids with improper steering gear was more costly than expected.
