p.2 Another Vessel For Europe - On Sunday the schooner W.H. Merritt, Captain McDonald, arrived at this port, and is lightening her cargo at Doyle's wharf, to enable her to pass the St. Lawrence canals. The W.H. Merritt took in her load at Wallaceburg, County of Kent, which consists of some pieces of the finest and largest timber that has been shipped this season, save that taken out by the E.S. Adams. Among them is one stick of white wood, which for size and thorough soundness surpasses anything of the kind we have seen. It is 10 feet long, and measures 41 x 38 inches in diameter. The rest of the cargo is made up of 1,700 feet B.M. Wainscot Oak; 1,500 do. Walnut; 10,000 feet Whitewood; 10,000 do. Sycamore; 20,000 India West staves; 500 three inch Pipe do.; 50,000 feet B.M. Hickory.
The Merritt is owned by Capt. Thomas Smith, of St. Catherines, and having, since last in this port, undergone important alterations, is considered adapted to make a prosperous voyage. She is rated at three hundred tons, and with full cargo draws upwards of ten feet of water. We believe Captain Smith is also owner of the cargo.
