The schr. Augusta cleared last night from St. John for Toledo.

The tug Conqueror has been engaged to tow a raft from Hamilton down the lake and river.

On and after Sunday night at 12 o'clock the new Welland Canal will be lighted up throughout for night navigation for the season.

Capt. John Dix returned last evening to Garden Island per steamer Maud, after a two weeks' sojourn through the principal American cities.

The steam yacht Stella, of Kingston, purchased by Mr. Tate, and which is to be placed on a regular route from Penetanguishene to the islands this summer arrived at the former place yesterday.

The last raft sent from Garden Island to Calvin & Son contained 16 drams, eight of which were loaded, making it equal to 24 single drams, being the largest that has ever gone down the St. Lawrence. At present prices the timber would net the nice little sum of $150,000.
