p.2 Morrisburg, May 11th - The propeller Colonist was today taken off the bank at the head of the Rapid Du Plat by the tug William. The Colonist sustained no damage, and is now taking on her grain and flour here which was taken from her by barge. She leaves for Montreal during tonight.

-The Muir Bros., of Port Dalhousie, intend despatching a vessel to Europe as soon as navigatioin in the Lower St. Lawrence is open. They will load the barque Niagara, now undergoing a few necessary repairs at Andrew's dock, with timber and staves, giving the command to Capt. Zealand, of Hamilton. The Messrs. Muirs have got out all the timber and staves themselves, and we trust that the venture in which they are about to engage may prove highly successful. The Niagara will return in time to take part in the fall trade.
