A 400 ton ship, the Peerless, has recently been launched in Chatham, Upper Canada, 800 miles above Quebec. Two fine new ships were launched on the 24th inst., at Quebec - one of them 1800 tons burthen ( a very large ship capable of carrying about 4 millions of pounds of iron) and the other of 700 tons; a third, the Fallwood, of 1200 tons, was launched same day at same port; and on the 11th the Admiral, 140 tons, was launched at Port Hope. These 4240 tons of shipping are worth nearly $160,000, and form a very respectable item in the list of Canadian home manufactures.
