p.2 The new steamer Europa, Capt. Harrison, left Hamilton yesterday morning for Toronto, Kingston and Ogdensburgh, and we presume passed here for the latter port at an early hour this morning.

A vessel a short time since bound for Chicago, from Sodus Bay, Lake Ontario, without a cargo, took in 200 cords of wood, which cost about 8s per cord. The expense of taking it would not much exceed the cost of ballast, and at $5 per cord, the price at Chicago, a handsome profit will be realized.

Accident To the Magnet - We regret to learn that the steamer Magnet was disabled, on her last upward trip, by an accident to her machinery. The Magnet was towed into Cobourg by the Passport. Two or three weeks must elapse before the Magnet will be ready to resume her place in the Lake mail line. The steamer New Era will, in the meantime, go upon the route between Hamilton and Kingston.
