p.2 Shipping News - At the wharf of J.H. Henderson & Co. - The new tug Wren, of this company, is now ready, and will leave tonight with four barges containing 36,400 bushels of wheat and corn.

At Swift's wharf - The steamer Magnet passed down this morning, and the steamer Picton passed up for Oswego at the same time.

At Gurney and Glidden's - The steam barge Nile, with two barges, returned from Cape Vincent today, and will leave for the Rideau this evening. The schooners Bermuda and Clyde are loading cordwood for Toronto.

The New Steamer Maud - This fine vessel is fast progressing toward completion, and the noisy clang of the hammer of the workmen is heard incessantly from dawn to dark. All the iron work of the hull is completed, ready for putting on the wooden plating on her bottom. Her boiler is in, and her bulwarks and promenade deck are on, and there is little doubt but that she will be fit for running in all July. The Maud has been tendered for the Picton and Belleville route.

The Louise - The steamer Louise was delayed upon her route from Ottawa, on account of a crack in her boiler, and did not arrive until six o'clock last evening. She will remain here until Friday, when she will leave at her usual hour.

At the M.T. Company's wharf - The tug Glide arrived with three barges and left again this afternoon with six barges, containing 60,000 bushels of wheat.

The Pierrepont has gone to Davidson and Doran's wharf to be stripped of the remainder of her machinery.
