p.2 The American Steamers - The Ontario will be the first steamer of this line into port this season. She is advertised to leave the United States wharf on Tuesday next, at three o'clock, on her downward trip.

-The old wharf between the city Grand Trunk depot and the United States wharf is being overhauled and repaired, and will be used for the smaller steamers to land at when the adjacent wharf is crowded, as well as for general purposes. The trade in this quarter of the harbor has so increased as to demand this additional accommodation.

Police Court - Daniel Donoghue, the new lessee of the market tolls, preferred a charge against Donald McTallen, the owner of a scow, for refusing to pay toll, under the new Market By-law, on the wood brought to the city in his vessel. The toll is twenty-five cents for every ten tons and the scow is registered at thirty four tons. A fine of $10 was imposed, against which McTallen appealed, finding bail at the same time for his appearance at the next sittings of the Recorder's Court. There are several others who have also refused to pay toll, and will protest against this particular clause of the new by-law, the desire to fully put the matter to a proper legal test.

-It is reported that the American Line of Steamers on Lake Ontario will commence tri-weekly trips through the Lake on Monday, calling at this port on Tuesday. The Ontario, Capt. Estes, and the Bay State, Capt. Morley, are now being put in order here to start the line. They will run in connection with the steamer Alexandria, Capt. Bockus, which runs from Ogdensburg to Montreal. The Cataract is undergoing extensive improvements and will not be out till June, when a daily line will commence. Capt. Ledyard will command the Cataract. [Rochester paper]

Her Majesty - This new propeller of Black and Perry's Line, is fast urging on to completion. Steam will be got up on Saturday (tomorrow,) and she will probably make hertrial trip early in the ensuing week.

p.3 Important to Canadian shippers - The collector of the port of Cleveland, Ohio, publishes the following notice to Canadian shippers, under date of the 22nd of April: "Shippers of goods from Canada are hereby notified, that after this date, no goods from any foreign country will be permitted entry at this port, unless said goods are accompanied with proper invoices, with the proper consular agent's verification attached. The only invoices that do not require said verifications, are those of goods which are free under the Reciprocity Treaty."
