Hauled Out - The schooner Dauntless, which has been repaired on the ways at Portsmouth, ran off the carriage yesterday when being launched. She was tugged off by the steamer Hiram A. Calvin, and strained thereby, so that she had to be hauled out again for repairs.

Wreck of the Evergreen City - The expedition to raise the propeller Evergreen City on Long Point returned on Saturday without accomplishing anything towards the desired object, except leaving a pump at Port Rowan. The wreck is reported deeply embedded in sand, and will be hard to raise, but we understand the undertaking has not been abandoned. Another pump has been engaged, and possibly the party will return to her today. [Buffalo Express]

p.3 The Montreal Trade - The traffic of the Chatham and Montreal steamers has been thus far favourable, the shipments to and from these points being brisk, and trips performed with regularity. The only annoyance they are subject to is the barrier at the entrance of the River Thames. This, it is now stated, is shortly to be removed, when the necessity of lightering will no longer remain. The steamer Mary Ward arrived on Saturday with a cargo for Montreal, consisting of 2,500 barrels of flour and sundries. The steamer Dominion accompanied her to Windsor, bringing 1,000 barrels of the above quantity to that place to allow the Ward to pass over the bar. The latter steamer took on 1,000 barrels of whiskey at Walker's distillery, and proceeded on her voyage. [Detroit Free Press]
