MARINE INTELLIGENCE.

While on her way to Ottawa the str. James Swift had her wheel broken and has been detained at the capital in consequence.

Arrivals: str. Passport, Toronto; str. Spartan, Montreal; schr. B.W. Folger, Oswego, coa; str. Arabian, Duluth, wheat.

Capt. Hiram Vaugh, formerly of the str. Persia, will shortly take command of the str. Ocean, Capt. Trowell having resigned.

Capt. Hinckley, sr., recalls the time when he sailed the old original Pierrepont, about twenty-five years ago. He could make the trip to Cape Vincent in 1:20 hours. The Pierrepont and Maud take nearly 2 hours.

The str. Guide, from Cape Vincent, arrived at Swift's dock, last evening, and took on coal. She is a fine little steamer, owned by W. Newman, a native of this city, and will carry excursion parties on Saturday from Cape Vincent to the city. Her route is between Oswego and Alexandria Bay.
