Three schooners with Ericson's propeller, passed up the river last week, laden with passengers and merchandize, bound to Chicago; they were from Oswego.

LAUNCH. We are informed that the Railway Company intend to launch, on Monday at 4 P. M. from their yard, another of the Steam Schooners built for Messrs. Woodward & Hutcheson of Port Stanley, to be called the "LONDON." These vessels, fitted with the Ericson propeller, if successful, of which there can be no doubt, will form a new era in the history of the navigation of this Province, carrying as they are intended to do, a full cargo from the Upper Lakes to Montreal and Quebec, without breaking bulk. They are to descend the rapids to Lachine and return by the Rideau canal. We wish the enterprising proprietors the success their energy well deserves. The "St. THOMAS," launched some time since, was expected to leave Niagara this day, on her first upward trip, and will be here in a week or ten days on her way to Montreal. --- Kingston Chronicle, June 4th.
