Authority has been received by F.W. Cowie, the chief engineer of Montreal harbor, to remove the barge Regina, which came to grief at the Allan wharf when the steamer Neepawah made her plunge through the gates of the lock on Tuesday night.

The demolition speedily occurred. The barge was abandoned by the owners, the M.T. Co.
