Deserved Compliment - Capt. Crawford, late of the steamer Rochester, is gaining golden opinions in the West.

A case of importance to the shipping interest is lately reported.

The cargo of the Renaud is being recovered. The paper belonging to Messrs. Buntin & Co., from their paper mills at Valleyfield, is saved.

Captain Rankin defends his conduct on the score of necessity.

Starling of Belleville, who intend to place her, together with five or six other vessels, in the coal trade between Cleveland and Toronto, and have named her the Starling.
