p.2 Large Arrivals of Timber - There were no less than 14 lake vessels at Garden Island yesterday, just arrived downwards, laden with timber and staves for Calvin and Breck. Several others have arrived since.

Trade Between The Lakes and England - The barque Wirralite, the pioneer of a line of vessels sailing between Liverpool in England, and Detroit on Lake Erie, arrived in Kingston on Saturday evening, and left port for her destination this morning. The Wirralite landed some fifty tons of goods at Montreal, and twenty tons at this port. The remainder of her cargo, which consists of general merchandize, is for Toronto and Detroit. The passage was made in thirty days from Liverpool to Montreal. The line is owned by Cunningham, Shaw & Co., Liverpool, who are represented in Kingston by Mr. J.M. Millar, as agent. The Thermutis, the first homeward bound vessel of this line, passed down the river some ten days since, and sailed from Quebec yesterday. Her cargo consisted of 420 tons copper ore from the Bruce Mines, and 300 tierces of lard, shipped at Cleveland.
