p.2 Shipping News - J.H. Henderson & Co's wharf - The barges Lark and Lion left last night in tow of the steamer William for Montreal with combined cargoes of 30,000 bush wheat. The schr. Kate Bally cleared this morning, light, for Sarnia. This vessel was built last fall with the intention of making her a steam-barge, and the fact of that intention having been abandoned, and the vessel fitted out as a schooner, caused her to be an object of much curiousity to those interested in shipping and ship-building, and she was in consequence visited yesterday by a large number of persons, who closely inspected her build.

Shipyard - The Jenny P. Mac has just shipped a new foremast and mizzen topmast, and the riggers are at work upon her today. The leak of the Peerless has been stopped; it originated in a started plank, and the vessel, after receiving a complete overhaul, has left the yard and proceeded to reload her cargo of iron ore.

Swift & Co's wharf - The steamer St. Helen passed down last night. The steam-barge R. Anglin left this morning for the Rideau Canal.

The Orkney Lass arrived here today from Cape Vincent, and will load iron ore for Cleveland.

Garden Island - The steamer H. Calvin left last night for Trenton, and the steamer Hercules at the same time for Toronto; both for rafts. The elevator Orb has been raised by Messrs. Calvin & Breck's divers, and removed from Carruther's wharf to Garden Island, where she is laid up. No arrivals today. The schr. Shannon cleared today for the Bay of Quinte, light.

The M.T. Company's wharf - The prop East from Chicago, arrived this morning with 14,000 bush wheat and 200 bbls flour. She discharged her cargo, and will leave tonight for Toledo, light.

The schr Peerless sailed for Cleveland this afternoon.

For Liverpool - The bark Thermeutis, Capt. Robert Dick, left Cleveland on Thursday afternoon for Liverpool. She had on board 1,960 barrels of refined petroleum oil, 15,000 feet of boat oars, and 14,500 staves. The bark Wirralite is now on her way out, and is expected to arrive in the course of two or three weeks, when she will immediately load with oil, staves, etc., and return to Liverpool. It is also expected that the bark Etowah will arrive in time to take out another cargo this fall before the close of navigation.

St. Catherines, Aug. 9th - Lock No. 1 at Port Dalhousie is repaired.
