MARINE INTELLIGENCE.

The tug Bronson cleared last night for Montreal with two grain laden barges.

The schooner Jamieson arrived this morning at the M.T. company's elevator with a cargo of wheat from lake ports.

Arrivals at Crawford's wharf - schooners Burton from Oswego, and Acacia from Sodus with coal; tug Edmond with barge Columbia from Bedford Mills with cordwood.

The Toronto Mail says it is stated on good authority that the receipts of the Richelieu and Ontario navigation company were swelled by $100,000 as a result of the work of the steamer Toronto.

Arrivals at Richardsons' elevator: schooners McDonald, Idlewild and Laura D. from bay ports with cargoes of peas and wheat; schooners Madcap and Minnie from Wolfe Island with oats and peas.

Sailors on the lakes suffered greatly by the cold of Monday night, being unprepared for its advent at this early season. Several of them had their fingers frost-bitten and received medical attendance at Oswego, N.Y.

The steamer Jubilee, formerly owned by Capt. T.J. Craig, of this city, arrived yesterday at Anglin's wharf, where it will go into winter quarters. During the summer, the Jubilee was engaged in the excursion business, running from Cornwall and intermediate points as far as Dundee.

The steel steamers Arthur Orr and G.N. Orr have been bought by the Canada Atlantic railroad company and will be used in the Chicago-Georgian Bay grain trade. Other steamers will also be secured. Next year the Canada Atlantic expects to take over five million bushels of grain from Chicago to Canadian ports for export.

p.6 Getting the Boat Up - A telegram from John Donnelly, jr., working at the steamship Porter, sunk near Quebec, states that the steamer had been pumped clear of water and would be entirely clear at low water. The operation of stopping the leak in the Porter was a gigantic one, her bow being cut almost entirely away. It was necessary to temporarily rebuild the broken parts with deals and cover these with canvas.
