      The Liverpool Post of May 28th. thus notices the Cleveland brig J.G. DESHLER:
"ARRIVAL OF A SHIP FROM OHIO.---On Friday a fine clipper looking vessel arrived in the river, which from her peculiar rig, attracted considerable attention. She proves to be the American brigantine JOHN G. DESHLER, Captain Charles Gale, from Cleveland, Ohio, with a cargo of about 200,000 feet of timber, consigned to Messrs. Cunningham and Shaw. We learn that this is the second voyage made by this vessel from the fresh water lakes of America to this country, and her captain has proved himself a thorough navigator in every sense of the word. It may be interesting to state that Cleveland is about 1,200 mile above Quebec, and is situated on Lake Erie. Thus vessels coming thence sail through Lake Ontario and the Kingston Canal in the River St. Lawrence. This trade promises to be one of great importance, for the last year no less than 37 vessels came into salt water and crossed the Atlantic, six of which were chartered and loaded for this port, and returned with full cargoes of general merchandise."
