Our Upper Canada readers will feel interested in the result of the trial to navigate the ocean with Lake schooners. Last fall, Messrs. C.E. Levey & Co., of Quebec, the owners, with their usual enterprising spirit, determined upon making the experiment, and brought down to this port the Lilla, a very fine three masted schooner, built at Kingston, by Mr. Hunter, which was then lying at Cleveland, with the intention of sending the Lilla at once to England. The lateness of the season prevented the necessary alterations being made, and the vessel had to winter at Quebec. She sailed in May for London, and made a very good run home, and arrived at Quebec, having sailed from Deal on the 5th of July. Our Western friends will have this satisfaction, that the first arrival of the fall fleet, on the second voyage, is the Upper Canadian clipper schooner Lilla, proving that slip keel vessels can traverse the Atlantic as fast as the finest European keeled vessel.
