p.2 Sea-going vessels - The Thermutis left Berry's wharf this afternoon, en route to Liverpool, with a cargo of copper ore, from the Bruce mines, and a quantity of red cedar as dunnage. The Saranac of the same line passed down on Saturday with 460 tons of copper ore, and 8,000 West India staves as dunnage. A third vessel of this line, the Wirralite, passed upwards yesterday loaded with rice, chemicals, etc. for Toronto and Hamilton, intending to return with a cargo of copper ore from the Bruce mines. So successful has this line been in conveying freight direct to Liverpool, that it is in contemplation to place another vessel on the line immediately, arrangements for which are now being made.

-The steamer Grecian took down this morning the two batteries of Royal Artillery under orders to leave today.

-The new steamer Spartan arrived here at four o'clock this afternoon, having left Prescott at half past nine this morning.
