MARINE INTELLIGENCE.

J. Burks joined the crew of the S.S. Algonquin.

The schr. Fleetwing is loading lumber for Oswego. Her captain expected to clear today.

Arrivals: str. Persia, St. Catharines; str. Bertha, Wolfe Island; prop. Glengarry and barge Minnedosa, Fort William, 90,000 bushels wheat.

Departures: prop. Persia, Montreal; str. Bertha, Nine Mile Point; S.S. Algonquin, Lake Superior, light; tug Hall, four barges, Montreal; 100,000 bushes of wheat.

Capt. A.B. Davy, of elevator No. 1, was presented with a pair of eagles by the mate of the S.S. Algonquin. On Sunday one of the birds got away and he had an interesting time trying to recapture it.

The steambarge Colonial, which ran on the rocks at Pigeon Island nearly a week ago, is still fast. Forty shovellers and four steam pumps worked on her yesterday and all last night. A barge was filled with grain yesterday, and the remainder is now being shovelled into the lake. Last evening the captain of the sloop Laura D. and his crew gathered between 700 and 800 bushels of the floating corn and brought it to the city this morning.
