p.2 Shipping News - There has been for several days past quite a stagnation in the shipping business of the port, caused in part by the late break in the Welland Canal, and by the difficulty experienced by shippers in procuring barges for the transhipment of grain. However, things begin to brighten again today, and as the repairs in the canal are now completed, by Monday next we may expect the customary flow of business. Our report today is:-

At Glassford, Jones & Co's wharf - The new tug Eclipse arrived from Montreal this morning with four barges in tow.

J.H. Henderson wharf - The bark British Lion is loading for Chicago with 200 tons of pig iron, 150 bbls herrings, and 2 cases of glassware, and will probably sail this evening.

The M.T. Company's wharf - The prop Bruno arrived this morning from Cleveland with 15,000 bush wheat.

Gurney & Glidden's wharf - The Elswood arrived this morning with three barges laden with lumber and iron ore from the Rideau Canal. The steam-barge Hemlock, with lumber from the Rideau Canal, also arrived this morning. The sch Sea Bird, for Oswego, with 120,000 ft lumber; the Pearl, with 62,000 ft lumber; the Flying Scud, with 62,000 ft lumber, and the Irene, with 75,000 feet, sailed yesterday, all for Oswego.

The prop Magnet passed down, and the America up this morning, touching.

The steamer Kingston, on her passage up, landed three companies of the 60th Rifles at Prescott, with officers, women and children. They were to leave at once for Ottawa, their headquarters, by special trains.
