On thursday last the Steam Boat Pioneer arrived at this port, with about 80 passengers.

The Steam Brig Superior arrived on sunday, with about 170 passengers, and freight.

Most of these passengers are emigrants, some of them with families. The Schooners, which arrive almost daily, also bring their quota. The average number of emigrants which now arrive at this port, may be safely calculated at 250 per week.


We are gratified to learn that a company in Dover, U.C. are about to build a steam boat, to run between Fort Erie and Amherstburg.
