p.2 Atlantic Wharf - Yesterday we saw transhipping from the barque Jessie, Capt. Perkins, from Chatham, to a river barge, one hundred and twenty pieces black walnut logs, squared, measuring from two feet to three feet diameter, and from ten to fifteen feet in length. They are sound to the core, and will make English Timber merchants stare, at such noble products of the Canadian forest. From the same vessel was also being transhipped a large cargo of staves, white wood, etc., all intended for the Liverpool market.

At the same wharf the staunch schooner Adams, Capt. Nolan, from Bear Creek, was lighting a portion of the cargo into the steamer Passport, to enable her to pass the St. Lawrence Canals. The Adams loaded at Bear Creek with lumber and peas, and is bound to Hamburg, and we trust it will prove a safe and successful voyage.

Boat Challenge - to Rochester Boat Club from Brockville for Rowing Race. [Br. Monitor]
