p.2 Arrivals from Halifax - On Saturday night last at 11 o'clock, the schooner Laidlaw, Capt. Campbell, arrived in this harbour with a full return cargo of sugar and other West India produce, destined for Toronto. The wind being fair she left the same morning. She left Halifax on the 26th May, thus making the run to this city in a few hours more than a fortnight.

The schooner Neptune, Capt. Gaskin, arrived here yesterday morning. She sailed from Halifax on Thursday, 29th May, with two hundred hhds. sugar and other goods, arriving at Quebec on Wednesday the 6th instant and Montreal on the 9th. At the latter port she discharged part of her cargo, 50 hhds. sugar, and left Lachine on Sunday morning. Capt. Gaskin reports having encountered a fog en route to Quebec, during the existence of which, for five days and nights, he saw neither sun, moon, or stars. In other respects the weather was favorable. The Neptune sailed from this port for Toronto yesterday afternoon.

We understand the voyages of both the Laidlaw and the Neptune were profitable to all concerned. The former will make another trip this season, but the latter will continue to navigate the lakes as usual.
