p.2 City Items - One schooner, the Jane Woodruff, with a cargo of wheat, consigned from Chicago to the St. Lawrence Forwarding Company, arrived in port yesterday. The propellers Europe and Dominion, from Montreal, passed up yesterday afternoon, and the Dromedary arrived today from the same place, discharging a portion of her cargo at Swift's wharf, before proceeding westward. The Royal Mail steamer Corinthian, bound down from Hamilton on her last trip, run into Port Hope last night for shelter. Captains of steamers and other craft complain very much of the great danger to which they are exposed in consequence of the absence of a beacon or some other light, by which they can be directed at night of the presence of shoals in the harbour. A number of schooners have been stripped of their canvass and laid up at Napanee. The little steamer Quail, running between that town and Picton, had to break through the ice on Tuesday some distance in order to reach the dock.
