p.2 Propeller St. Lawrence - The propeller St. Lawrence, from Montreal, which arrived here this morning, reports having been detained at Cornwall for fourteen hours waiting for an order from the officer commanding to proceed. All vessels are detained, going down and coming up, until they receive an order to proceed on their way.
