p.2 For Hamburg Direct - The Barque Jessie Drummond, Captain H. Jackman of Toronto, from Port Stanley to Hamburg direct, leaves this port tomorrow evening on her voyage. She takes down 16,868 cubic feet of black walnut, of Canadian growth, receiving the remainder of her cargo at Quebec. The round voyage will occupy about four months, the vessel returning with a full general assorted cargo. The Jessie Drummond is a Canadian built vessel owned by Messrs. Ross and Jackman, Toronto; the cargo is owned by Mr. Thomas Rae, timber merchant, Hamilton. She is about 342 tons burthen, is strongly built, of good model, and her well-tested sailing qualities are supposed, together with her general build, to fit her admirably for the voyage she has undertaken.

Emigrants For the West - About 400 Norwegian emigrants passed up yesterday afternoon by the steamer Grecian, their destination being Illinois and other western states.
