Full Text

The schooner New Brunswick, of Saint Catharines, C.W., Capt. Charles G. Fortier, arrived in this port last Sunday morning from Quebec, having on board 450 tons of rail road iron destined for Cleveland, Ohio, for which port she sailed on Tuesday in company with the schooner Welland, into which vessel the New Brunswick lightened 150 tons of her cargo to enable her to pass the canals. This vessel has paid the largest amount of canal tolls collected from any one craft, say 9C53.
We believe that it is the intention of her enterprising owner, Thomas R. Merritt, Esq., to send her home to Europe this season with a cargo of flour from his own mills at St. Catharines, Welland Canal. [Montreal? Herald]

NOTE: the above cargo was supposedly loaded at Quebec ? She did not go to Europe until 1850
