p.2 A Quick Trip - The sloop Challenge, 50 tons burthen, made a remarkably quick trip on Tuesday from Oswego to this port. She left the latter place light, at 12 o'clock noon, arrived here and was tied up at the wharf at half-past four p.m. The wind was fair and lively, and the entire distance, 60 miles, was made in less than 4 hours and a half.

A New Barque - The British built ocean-going full-rigged barque Jacques de Molay, recently added to Shaw and Cunningham's Liverpool line, passed up last evening, and came to anchor off Four Mile Point. This afternoon she ran down to this harbor again, where she awaits a favoring breeze to proceed up the lake. The Jacques de Molay is a standing keel vessel and draws seven feet of water. She proceeds to Toronto and Detroit with 250 tons of merchandize, and returns with a cargo of copper ore from the Bruce mines.
