p.2 Marine - The new sloop Express, built at Wolfe Island, is shipping her first cargo at that place, composed of oats for Prescott. The schooner Fulton, repaired here, will leave this evening for Cobourg, to take in a cargo for Cleveland.

Quick Trip - The schooner Trade Wind, Capt. Stocker, arrived here yesterday morning, having left Toledo on the morning of the 24th, thus making the trip in the remarkably short time of four clear days.

p.3 The Chicago schooner Traveller, of 600 tons burden, was wrecked about 2 miles south of Calumet on Thursday morning. The vessel was thrown on the beach dismasted, with not a soul on board of her. It is supposed that three passengers and the entire crew were drowned.

When these cargoes are completed, about 275,000 gallons of oil will have been shipped from Cleveland to Europe during the season.
