p.2 We published in our columns a few weeks past a notice that the brig Iroquois would sail direct from this place for California by way of the river and Gulf of St. Lawrence. We are informed that an application was made to the Canadian authorities for permission to pass down the river, which, on the grounds of reciprocity, was not granted. Their reasons we will give more at length at some future time. So the California expedition fails to be carried into execution which would undoubtedly have been done by the enterprising proprietors of said vessel, had permission been granted of passing down the river.
