The Chicago board of marine writers has adopted the following rates on grain insurance for September, per $100: Kingston and Ogdensburg, 50 cents; Montreal, 60 cents.

The cargoes of the prop. Aztec and consort Zapatoc were not seriously affected by the heavy storm encountered. The Zapatac has almost 100 bushels damaged and the Aztec less than that. Both vessels have cleared for the west.
