We have also been favored with a return of the shipping which, during the season of 1845, has entered this Port. The reports to the Custom House embrace 388,788 tons. This return includes the steamers employed on the Bay and Lake, when carrying merchandise; but as the law requiring vessels to report, only came into force several weeks after the opening of the navigation, and as it has not in all instances been obeyed, the return is not quite as full as it might have been under other circumstances. As much as 15,000 or 20,000 tons have in this way entered without reporting. The amount of tonnage for 1845, stated above is likewise exclusive of all that engaged in trade on the canal and river, and which is very nearly equal in amount.
