p.2 Cargoes From the Upper Lakes - Vessels are arriving and passing down daily from the upper lakes with large cargoes of wheat, staves, pork, etc. The propellers come down, too, laden to their utmost capacity, a portion of their cargoes having to be transhipped here into barges so as to decrease their draught of water sufficient to enable them to pass through the St. Lawrence canals. Large quantities of oak lumber are also passing seaward, and the spring trade seems to be generally in a flourishing condition.

Sale Of The Schooner H.J. Jones - The schooner H.J. Jones was sold at auction yesterday by James Linton, and knocked down to Mr. James Richardson for 375 pounds. The H.J. Jones is 99 tons burthen, classed as B-1, and has a capacity for carrying 5,000 bushels.

On the Bar - The schooner Iris in passing out of the harbor yesterday afternoon was driven, by the stiff north wind which prevailed at the time, on the bar near the Martello shoal tower. She was soon got off, however, by the steamer Pierrepont, and proceeded on her way up the lake.

The Damage To the Gem - The damage to the hull of the schooner Gem, now that she has been hauled out, is found to be comparatively trifling, and which a few days will put to rights.

-The first steamer of the American line, the Ontario, arrived late yesterday afternoon, and proceeded downwards.
