PORT GRAMBY. -- We understand that the pier at Port Gramby, in the Township of Clarke, is almost completed, which will offer a good place of embarkation for the produce & Ect., of that neighbourhood, & we are glad to hear that our indefatigable townsman, David Smart, Esq., is the first in the field to take advantage of this new commercial facility, by paying Port Hope prices for wheat delivered there for shipment.
