A NOVEL ENTERPRISE - FROM CANADA DIRECT. - The schooner SCOTIA, Capt. Abbey, arrived at this port last night from Bear Creek, Lake Huron, Canada. Capt. Abbey left home about five weeks since with his craft for Boston, and came the following route: from Bear Creek thro' Lake St. Clair to Detroit River; through Lake Erie, Welland Canal, lake Ontario, River St. Lawrence, (touching and clearing out of Montreal,) thence to Quebec, Gulf of St. Lawrence, Cut of Canso and by Nova Scotia to Boston, touching at Portsmouth. The SCOTIA is 117 tons burthen, English measurement, and one of the best looking British schooners that has arrived here for some time past. The SCOTIA is said by the captain to be the first vessel that ever entered the port of Boston from Bear Creek, and the above route. Capt. Abbey appears to be a smart, enterprising man, and has his better half with him. For cargo he brings 88,000 feet of walnut lumber. -- Boston Traveller.
