FIRST ARRIVAL - The schooner AMHERSTBURGH of Port Sarnia arrived here yesterday in 7 hours from Port Sarnia, and will sail on Monday for Hamilton. She will leave Hamilton and Toronto as stated in our advertising columns. The AMHERSTBURGH is a sound vessel, and in sailing is not surpassed by any on this side of the lake, hence we would remind our merchants that this is a good opportunity for having their goods forwarded; also persons intending to settle in this district may, with their families, etc., be conveyed hither with convenience and safety.

      The vessel built for the Hon. H. Cameron, at Port Sarnia, by Messrs. Stud & McKenzie, which has been so much admired for her beauty and strength by every person who has seen her, was yesterday consigned to her natural element in the presence of the largest number of people ever seen at one time at Port Sarnia. The ceremony of christening was performed by Miss Emma Vidall, youngest daughter of Capt. Vidall, one of the oldest settlers of the place.
This vessel is called the SINBAD, and will in a few days be ploughing the lakes, under the command of Capt. Charles McGlashan, late of the schooner AMHERSTBURG - a person well worthy of commanding such a vessel.
