p.2 The Propeller Bruno - The M.T. Company's propeller Bruno arrived today from Chicago, with 3,500 barrels of flour, and 1,000 barrels of meal. She lightens 1,200 barrels here, and then proceeds to her destination, Montreal. This is her first trip hence and return.

Wharf Accommodation - Mr. Kinghorn is building an accommodation wharf adjoining his wharf for the especial benefit of the residents of Wolfe Island. This will compel the removal of the wood at present stored there.

-The propeller Dominion, of the Merchants Line, from St. Catherines yesterday, touched here today en route to Montreal, and landed 15 tons wrapping paper, and some other merchandize. She had on board 2,700 barrels of flour, 300 barrels of potash, and 20 tons of wrapping paper for Montreal.

-The barque Maitland, grain loaded from Chicago, which passed Detroit on Saturday noon, was followed by a revenue officer with a tug, which overtook her some miles down the river, seized and brought her back to Detroit. Up to a late hour on Saturday evening she was not yet liberated, and is doubtless awaiting the arrival of her owners. She is charged with sailing under United States colors while being a British vessel. As to the real merits of the case we are unadvised, says the Advertiser.
