p.2 The Propeller Delaware left Buffalo harbour this morning. She shot ahead as far as we could follow her by our eye, and by one o'clock she was out of sight. A gentleman, who came down the lake, informs us he saw her off Silver Creek, and there was no doubt she would get through.

The steamers United States and New Orleans were in Erie on Wednesday evening. They may be expected here tomorrow afternoon.

Welland Canal - The water in the Canal has now nearly attained its level here - it is full above - and by Saturday navigation may be resumed. The mouth of the Grand River is clear.
