p.2 Another Lake Vessel For Liverpool - The Guide, Port Hope, says that Messrs. McDermot & Walsh, of that town, "are about loading the barque WaterWitch with flour, to be conveyed directly from this port to Liverpool, England, without transhipment. We trust this is the beginning of an extensive trade between the Town of Port Hope and the City of Liverpool, and that the statement quaintly made by an eccentric advertiser in the Guide, that "Port Hope is the Liverpool of Canada" may be fully verified. A safe and prosperous voyage, we say, to the WaterWitch, and we earnestly hope that the gentlemen who intend despatching her on this long journey may have ample pecuniary returns for their commendable enterprise." The Water Witch is a new vessel, lately built at Montreal, and is now in Kingston harbour.

Schooner Sovereign - There is a report in the western papers that the schooner Sovereign made Sodus Bay, and is there safe. We regret to say that the report is incorrect, and that there is too much reason to fear that the Sovereign has been lost, with all hands.
