p.2 Gunboat Heron - The gunboat Heron reached here yesterday shortly before noon, and is being repaired and furbished up at the dock yard. She left Toronto at four on Saturday afternoon. The Heron since leaving here has been flying between Toronto and Hamilton and Port Dalhousie, her "beat" extending from the latter place to Prescott for the present. When the painting is done she will steam over to the city, and take up her old quarters in the stream.

Schooner Saranac - The sea-going top-sail schooner Saranac, Captain William Wright, belonging to the firm of Nagren and Purdon, Liverpool, arrived here last evening with a cargo of 450 tons copper ore from the Bruce mines, en route for Liverpool. She made the passage from the mines in twelve days. In addition to the ore, 200 tons of which are lightering here, the Saranac carries a quantity of staves, hickory poles and spokes. The barque Jacques de Molay belonging to the same firm is expected to arrive downwards in a few days with a similar cargo to that of the Saranac.
