-The steamer Gazelle left yesterday afternoon for Gananoque with a large cargo of general merchandize, flour, etc.

-The propeller Brockville, belonging to Chaffey Brothers, and the propeller Bruno of the Beaver line, arrived up from their winter quarters yesterday, on their way to the upper lakes. The Brockville is bound for Chicago.

-The tug steamer Ottawa brought up the schooner Baltimore and 5 barges yesterday from Gananoque, for Messrs. Glassford and Jones. The Baltimore has been pretty thoroughly rebuilt and strengthened, and may be considered almost as good as new. The schooner Noquetta from Gananoque, is now loading with coal for that place. The propeller West, of Henderson & Co's line, left yesterday for Milwaukie. All the lake craft, both steam and sailing vessels, are generally proceeding westward for their spring cargoes.

Launched - The propeller Colonist, which has been undergoing extensive overhauling and repairs at the Marine Railway, was transferred back to her proper element on Monday evening. The Colonist is one of the largest of our lake propellers, capable of bringing 3,500 barrels of flour through the Welland canal. The George Moffatt takes the place of the Colonist on the ways for repairs.
