"We have now lying at the C. W. Railway Block a large three master, the PRINCE OF WALES, of St. Catharines, taking on a cargo of oil to be taken hence direct to Liverpool; so that the experiment of shipment hence, direct, will soon be put to the test, and we hope with favorable success.
      The PRINCE OF WALES will carry about 3,000 barrels, most of which she will take on board here, and the balance at Mooretown at which place Mr. Bush, the owner has about 800 barrels.
