p.2 American Steamers - The steamer Cataract, of the American Express Line, left for Charlotte this afternoon to lay up for the season. The change of time consequent on this withdrawal is that the Bay State and Ontario will make tri-weekly trips on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, calling here downwards at three o'clock in the afternoon, and upwards at six in the morning.

The Barque Wavertree - The Ocean Barque Wavertree is now in the harbor, on her homeward voyage, with a cargo of peas, cedar and oil cake, from the upper American lake ports. She is lightening a portion of her cargo at Glassford & Jones's. The Barque Etowah of the same line will arrive downwards in a few days.

The Schooner J.G. Wheeler - A further attempt was made on Saturday by the tug steamers Wellington and William to haul off the schooner J.C. Wheeler, which went ashore some days since at Salmon Point Bay, some sixty miles from here, and about ten miles above Long Point. The steamers worked from nine o'clock in the morning to six in the evening, when the line from the Wellington broke, and they returned to the city. The J.C. Wheeler was laden with lumber for Calvin & Breck from Port Dover, and her deck load has been washed overboard. She is lying on her side, with but two feet out of water, and it is feared that the high wind of last night has done her a material damage.
