Console logging - The messages sent to the console port. (This is the messages you'll see when you're physically connected to the console port on the router.)
Monitor logging - The messages logged to any session (such as telnet) that enable monitoring via the "terminal monitor" command.  (This is the messages you'll see when you telnet to the router and type "terminal monitor" on the CLI.)
Buffer logging - The messages stored in the router's log buffer.  (The messages that gets shown in the "show logging" output.)

I found a link for you as well.  Table 7 in the Cisco IOS Configuration Fundamentals Command Reference entry for "show logging" have a more formal definition of the fields.

You can also check out the "Logging System Messages" section of the "Basic System Management Configuration Guide, Cisco IOS Release 15M&T".
