p.1 Shipping News - There is a dearth of shipping news at present, that portion of the business of the city being almost entirely confined just now to the regular steamboat transit of the port.

At J.H. Henderson & Co's wharf the schooner Summit is loading 220 tons of pig iron for Chicago.

At Swift's wharf the propeller America passed down, and the Indian up yesterday; the steamers Abyssinian and Corsican passed down this morning, and will return this evening.

At Gurney and Glidden's wharf the steam-barge Kitty Friel arrived yesterday from the Rideau with one barge and freight of railway ties and shingles for Cape Vincent. The schooner Three Friends left last night with a cargo of iron ore. The steam barge Nile left last night for the Rideau, light.

p.2 The Wreck Of The Steamer Whitehall - Mr. John Donnelly intends to start today from Garden Island with divers, dresses, boxes, timber, etc., to the steamer Whitehall, sunk in the Rideau Canal, the attempts to raise which have hitherto been unsuccessful. Mr Donnelly has been very successful in his wrecking operations, and great faith is placed in his ability to raise the Whitehall.

Schooner Aground - On Tuesday the schooner Mary Grover, in tow of the steamer William, broke away from the tug on her way up, immediately above the Galops Rapids, and ran back down the rapids, striking on a shoal at the termination, where she now lies. She will be got off without material damage.
