The Steamer St. Helen - From a letter received from Mr. McCuaig this morning, we (Belleville Intelligencer) have reason to believe the steamer St. Helen will be again afloat in a few days. After a careful examination and inspection by Mr. Davidson, he reports the injuries she received at the time of the accident to be much less serious than was expected. Mr. Davidson has arrived at the place of accident with all the needful appliances, steam pumps, and we have every hope the St. Helen will resume her trips by the first of June. Meantime the steamer Picton will take her place.

Harbour Improvement - The deputation from the Board of Trade expect to leave for Ottawa on Monday night. It is probable that the action of the City Council on Monday night will be in the right direction, in which case both deputations will proceed harmoniously together.

Damaged Cargo - A few days since the schooner William John, of Kingston, ran aground near North Port, sprung a leak and was towed to Mill Pond, with a cargo of 2,400 bushels of barley in a damaged condition which was bought by Mr. Rathbun and sold out at fifty cents a bag. The Western Insurance Co. paid $1,500 for the cargo, and Mr. Rathbun made some $200 on the sale.

Drowned - blind man fell off steamer Rochester on way from Mill Point to Belleville.

Garden Island, May 11th - The schooners Olive Branch, Royal Oak and Charm, all with staves from Hamilton, arrived yesterday, and the schooner Canada, with timber from Lake Erie shore arrived today. The Olive Branch, now here discharging staves, is a new fore and aft schooner, purchased this spring by Captain Joseph Dix, of this place. She has a capacity of over 8,000 bushels of wheat, and is a very handsome schooner in every particular.
