p.2 Shipping News - The wind yesterday during nearly the whole of the day was blowing up the lake, and retarded the arrival of expected vessels, consequently there are few arrivals to report this morning. The weather today was extremely unfavourable to grain elevating on account of the rain, which poured down steadily all the morning. The following is in addition to yesterday's report:-

At J.H. Henderson & Co's wharf - The schooner Atmosphere arrived today from Chicago with 15,200 bushels of wheat. The barge Linnet, light, from Montreal this morning; the barque St. Lawrence sailed last night for Toledo.

At Swift's wharf - The propellers America and Bristol passed down last evening, and the steamers City of London, Corinthian and Picton up this morning. The steamer Kingston will pass up this evening.

At Jones & Millar's wharf - The schooner Sarco, from Chicago, with 17,152 bushels of corn, arrived this afternoon.
