      The steamer CHINA of the Anchor line departed this morning for Toronto in charge of the tug MASON, which will tow her to Port Colborne. The Merchants Montreal line has bought her. On arrival at Toronto she will put in new boilers, compound her engines and be remodelled and refitted, coming out, it is expected, about the first of June as the CITY OF MONTREAL. She will ply between Montreal, Cleveland, Detroit, Toledo and Windsor, in connection with other boats owned by that company.
