Last Saturday morning, fourteen schooners, laden with merchandise and produce, sailed from this port for Michillimackinac and the ports on lake Michigan.


The Steam Boat Walk-in-the-water arrived here last Tuesday evening. She left Buffalo on the 13th inst., at 11 o'clock, A.M. and brought several emigrants to this territory. Among the passengers were two or three gentlemen who are attached to the Boundary commission. The Walk-in-the-water is the first vessel that has arrived here this spring from Buffalo, and we are informed, that notwithstanding the lateness of the season, she passed large quantities of ice in leaving the lower part of the lake.
