p.2 The Europa - We learn from the Rochester Union that Captain Throop, for some years master of the steamer Ontario and other steamers, lately passed up en route to Toronto to make arrangements for the steamer Europa to run between that port and Oswego, calling at the north shore ports. The Europa is a large steamer, and a very good one, albeit she now lies sunk at the dock in Toronto. She was permitted to sink through carelessness, but will be speedily raised and put in order. There is no steam connection between Oswego and the Canadian ports, the want of which is doubtless felt somewhat there, by the forwarders and others. We understand that it is confidently expected that the arrangments will be made so that Capt. Throop will take command of the Europa and put her on the route referred to in a few weeks.

White Fishing - The Rochester Union has an article in which it intimates that the monopoly so long enjoyed by Canadians in the white fish traffic is likely to be interrupted. It says that for years past supplies for Rochester have come from the Canada shore, and have constituted no inconsiderable portion of the Maple Leaf's regular freight. But Her Majesty's waters are this season measurably deserted, and, acting on the supposition that the missing white fish have migrated to this side, three of their enterprising Izaakians crossed over from Colborne on Saturday, with ample fixtures and accoutrements for a thorough trial, and are already engaged in testing the piscatorial properties of the waters of Lake Ontario, adjacent to Charlotte and the mouth of the Genessee.
