p.2 The barque Arabia arrived here on Sunday morning from the head of the lake, freighted for Glasgow, and will leave, we suppose, in a day or so for her sea voyage.

The old and favorite steamer Princess Royal has been purchased by a house below, and has gone to Quebec by the canal, where she is to be employed to and from the Saguenay during the season. The Princess Royal is peculiarly adapted for this purpose, as although not so fast as required for the mail and passenger business on Lake Ontario, she is by no means a slow boat, while she is a first rate Clyde modelled steamer. Her timbers having been "kyanized," are as sound today as when first put together.

Launch - By a letter from a friend on Amherst Island, we learn that a splendid schooner of nearly 200 tons, built in Mr. Tait's ship yard there for James Morton, Esq., of this city, was launched on the 4th inst., at 5 p.m., in the presence of a large concourse of spectators. The new vessel was duly named the Frontenac. Another schooner is on the stocks in Mr. Tait's yard for Mr. Morton. These vessels are to be employed in the lumber trade.
