The British iron stm. MOHAWK, mounting two 68 pounders, touched at our docks for coal yesterday. She is ordered to Toronto, and we believe is now the only British armed vessel on the lower lakes. She is commanded by Capt. Herbert.

FOR PORT STANLEY. -- By the advertisement in another column it will be seen that the iron steamer MOHAWK, Capt. Hollywood, has commenced her trips for the season between this city and Port Stanley, leaving here every Tuesday, Friday and Saturday evening and Port Stanley on alternate days. The MOHAWK was built for the British Government and for many years was the government vessel on the lakes - doing similar duty to that performed by the U. S, steamer MICHIGAN. She is a staunch vessel, has admirable machinery, and an experienced and courteous crew.
