p.2 Homeward Bound - The Norwegian brigantine Sleipner, which passed up the lake some weeks since with a party of Norwegian emigrants for Chicago, came into port during Wednesday night on her return voyage to Bergen, Norway. The Sleipner has a cargo of wheat, rye, and kerosene oil, and draws ten feet of water; but this draught being too much to pass the St. Lawrence Canals, some 3000 bushels grain are being lightened here.

-The schooners Bridget and Admiral have arrived in Montreal from Sarnia with a quantity of coal oil destined for Liverpool. They have proceeded to Longueuil, where the oil will be transported to a sea-going vessel.

-The Detroit Tribune says several owners have it in contemplation to send their vessels to European ports before the close of navigtion this fall, with cargoes of grain. Immense cargoes of grain are now being exported from New York, and there is no good reason why the large commissions and charges incident to shipments cannot be saved, at least in part, by sending direct and without transhipment.

p.3 Imports - 25.
