The tug Walker cleared last night for Montreal with six grain laden barges.

The tug Active arrived from Oswego this morning with two barges laden with coal.

The steamer Marquette, grain laden from Toledo, touched at this port this morning and then cleared again for Prescott.

The schooner Two Brothers loaded 4,000 bushels of peas at Richardson & Sons' elevator yesterday and then cleared for Montreal.

Yesterday the steamer Corsican's engine stuck on the centre and ran into the dock at Brockville. From the planking of the dock to the edge of the water there are four timbers about a foot square each, and the fact that the sharp bow went through them like a cheese knife will give an idea of the force of the impact. Fortunately the boat was not injured, but the dock got a rough handling.
