A CANADIAN VESSEL FOR EUROPE. - The success attending the voyage last year of the schooner E.S. ADAMS to Liverpool has induced her owners, Messrs. Norris and Neelon, to dispatch her on a similar voyage this season, and she left last week loaded with lumber. This is the third vessel owned on the Welland Canal that has left Canada for Europe this season, and during the present week it is expected that two more, the W.H. MERRITT and the ALEXANDER, will leave, the first, for Liverpool, and the latter for Glasgow.

The barque ALEXANDER, Capt. A. Muir, which left Port Dalhousie last spring for Glasgow, Scotland, and was wrecked on her return to Canada, having to put back to a port in Ireland, where she remained all winter, arrived at Quebec on Thursday night last. All well. She had a boisterous , but fortunate voyage out. --- St. Catharines Journal.

      Vessels For The Coal Oil Trade
      The St. Catharines Journal says: "We understand that on Friday or Saturday last, Mr. Muir, the eminent ship-builder and owner, of Port Dalhousie, was waited upon by a deputation from the oil regions of Enniskillen, who made him an offer to purchase the NIAGARA, ALEXANDER, and the new vessel he has on the stocks, but we believe, he has not yet decided to sell. The vessels, if sold, will be taken and devoted exclusively to the conveyance of coal oil from Canada to Europe. The NIAGARA and ALEXANDER are both staunch sea-vessels, the latter having been rigged in Ireland, and the
former has made a voyage to Scotland, and is now in the St. Lawrence awaiting the opening of navigation to cross the Atlantic again."
