p.2 The Peerless - Captain Dick's new steamer, the Peerless, should have been launched from her dock at Niagara on Wednesday; but by an accidental shifting of the supports, it was found impossible to effect it. The vessel is said to present an admirable appearance, and for speed will far surpass anything yet seen on our Canadian Lakes.

The Fishery on Lake Huron, says the Huron Signal, has been as usual highly productive this season, and the vessels and hands belonging to Goderich have returned in safety. Nothing appears to limit the extent to which the fishery business might be conducted on Lake Huron, but the want of the requisites for catching, curing and transporting the fish - the piscator reserve being seemingly inexhaustible.
