p.2 On Monday last the 25th inst., the schooner Prince Edward, Captain Young, discharged a cargo of salt, at the new pier which is now in the course of erection at Wellington, by that spirited and enterprising gentleman, Archibald McFaul, Esq.

This Schooner is the first vessel that has been enabled to unload at the Pier, since its commencement, but the work is now proceeding so steadily and rapidly, that by the first of September or thereabouts, vessels of almost any burthen, will be able to unload with safety and ease, and the pier will then vie in appearance and strength, with any in the province. It is also expected that several of the Lake Steamboats will make it a stopping place, on their passage to and from Toronto, one in particular is we believe already pledged to do so, from the time the pier is completed, until the end of the present season. [Hallowell Traveller]

p.3 The Steam Boat St. George was raised last week and has gone to Niagara to be repaired on the railway. It is expected she will resume her trips in about a week.


The Sloop JOHN MARKS, Burthen about 50 Tons, copper fastened, with Rigging, etc. complete, having received a thorough repair on Mr. McIntyre's railway, warrants her now in perfect order for immediate business.
