Brig JOHN G. DESHLER. -- This fine vessel receives the following complementry notice from the the Greenock, Scotland, Advertiser, of July 5th: "This vessel arrived at the Tailof the Bank, on Thursday last, from Cleveland, (U. S.) with a cargo of staves similar to these per JOHN F. WARNER, lately noticed in our publication, and it is alleged by competent judges that finer were never imported into the clyde. The JOHN G> DESHLER was built by the same party as the J. F. WARNER, and sails remarkably fast, having made the passage from Quebec in 26 days, notwithstanding thaton the 5th day out she sprang her mainmast, and was very tender during the voyage. Her entire cargo, consisting of about 88,000 staves, has been purchased by John Stewart, Esq., cooper, Glasgow. The J. G. DESHLER is commanded by Capt.. Gale , who navigated the J. F. WARNER on her first voyage to this port.

The JOHN G. DESHLER arrived at Quebec on the 7th, in forty-six days from the Clyde, together with the schooner R.H. HARMON, having been in company coming up the Gulf. The DESHLER has 300 tons pig iron.
J.S. Cunningham has chartered of R.H. Harmon. owner, the DESHLER to take a cargo of oak and hickory plank and timber to Liverpool. The quality of the cargo will be superior. It will be loaded at Black River. The DESHLER will probably leave on her return voyage early in October.
