p.2 The new and profitable branch of commerce (we allude to the oil business) is likely to be established between Canada and Great Britain during the coming summer. The barque Prince of Wales, owned by Messrs. Norris & Neelon, has been chartered to proceed from Sarnia for Liverpool direct. She arrived at Port Sarnia on Monday, and commenced to take in her cargo, which will amount to 3,000 barrels of oil. Messrs. Thompson & Co. will fill up with staves, to the number of about 2000. When loaded, she will at once proceed to her destination across the broad Atlantic. If this trip should prove successful, and there is little doubt that it will, a very extensive trade will be the result.

Three well known steamers on Lake Erie are t be taken to pieces. The engines of the Crescent City and Queen of the West have been sold to a party in New York, and that of the Southern Michigan is going in the same direction.

p.3 Imports - 30, 1.
