MARINE INTELLIGENCE.

The schr. Pilot arrived this morning from bay ports light.

The str. Rosedale, Fort William, is at Portsmouth with a cargo of wheat.

The schr. Loretta Rooney, from Oswego, is at Garden Island with 300 tons of coal.

The schr. Glengarry and consorts will be discharged tonight, and will clear early in the morning for Fort William.

The sloop Idlewild, from bay ports, discharged 2,000 bushels of peas at Richardson & Sons' elevator this morning.

On her present trip the schr. Minnedosa brought down the largest cargo of wheat she ever carried, 64,000 bushels. Of course her capacity is greater, but the depth of water in the canals and channels would not permit her loading deeper.

p.4 Tidings Today - Capt. Hugh Chisholm, an old and highly esteemed citizen of Meaford, died yesterday, aged seventy-two years. He was one of the pioneer shipbuilders and navigators of Canada.
