p.2 For St. Catherines - The propeller Avon, of Jacques and Tracey's line, leaves here today for St. Catherines, to go into dry dock for repairs after which she will take her place in the line.

The Empress - The steamer Empress will leave here on Saturday evening, on her way to Toronto, where, as we have previously stated, she is to be placed on the route between that city and Niagara, in lieu of the Zimmerman, until the new vessel now building at St. Catherines shall have been completed. The Empress will then very probably run between Trenton and Montreal for the remainder of the season. Captain Chrysler is in command.

Outward Bound - In addition to those already stated, the schooner Cora left this port on Saturday for Oswego; and the London, Marie, and Selkirk, cleared on Monday for Wallaceburgh, Hamilton and Saginaw.

-The tug steamer Ottawa brought up several barges and a small schooner yesterday from Gananoque, where they had wintered. These will find their proper place in the ranks of the many vessels now actively fitting out for the summer work.

-The steamer Pierrepont took over to Cape Vincent yesterday another load of Canada cattle for the Federal army.
