SHIPPING ON THE LAKES. -- The Oswego Daily Times of Monday, notices the arrival there of the new barque AMERICA, Capt. John Cary, of Messrs. Merrick, Davis & Co's line of vessels, from Milwaukee with 14,150 bushels of wheat, drawing only 8 feet 5 inches of water. The Times says "This is believed to be the largest cargo that ever passed the Welland Canal, especially with the same draught of water. A vessel drawing 9 feet 3 inches can now pass the canal. The AMERICA can carry 21,000 bushels in deep water."
