p.2 40 vessels passed Detroit on Saturday. [Detroit Advertiser]

-brig John G. Deshler, Capt. Gale, from Cleveland reached Liverpool; [Liverpool Post] says that last year 37 vessels crossed Atlantic - 6 to Liverpool.

Vessel For Europe - Rae's vessel, the Plymouth, left port for Europe on Saturday, with a cargo of magnificent walnut lumber, some of the logs measuring 56 inches across. She had a fine breeze in her favor, and ought to make a quick passage. Mr. Rae grumbles sadly about the insurance he has had to pay. They have charged him 9 per cent from St. Catherines to Liverpool, and back to Montreal. This ship is classed as B-1 on the books, which is equal to A-2 at Lloyds. We really think 6 or 7 per cent should have been the outside. Even insurance companies ought to have some patriotism, and should encourage direct trade with Europe by every possible means. [Spectator]

p.3 sch. Chieftain to leave Quebec for Liverpool - shipped by Ross & Co. of Toronto.
