St. Catharines, May 19th - Shortly before noon yesterday, as the Erie Belle, bound up, was entering lock 22, below Thorold, one of the helpers placed the snubbing line on the third instead of the second snubbing post, thereby allowing the vessel to strike the two head gates, which opened out and allowed all the water in the level, between locks 22 and 23, to rush through, which carried them away, as well as the lower gates, which were open, and carrying the schooner below the lock. The schooner Queen of the North is aground just above the break. The Superintendent and Mr. Collier are on hand with a large force of men, and are doing their utmost to repair the break, which will probably be finished and ready to resume navigation tomorrow afternoon. About 40 vessels are delayed, bound down, and a large number bound up. The repairs will cost about $2,000.

The Clyde - The steamer Clyde, Captain John Ellis in command, from Quebec, stopped at Mr. Swift's wharf this morning. The Clyde is a fine large upper cabin and sidewheel steamer; she has been plying between Quebec and Saginaw, but will hereafter ply between Toronto and Port Dalhousie.

The fine steamer Picton is now on the route from Trenton to Montreal, leaving Kingston on her downward trip every Monday at 9 p.m. and upwards every Saturday at 2 p.m. Messrs. James Swift & Co. are the agents from whom every information can be obtained.
