For Liverpool Direct From Lake Ontario

The brigantine "Lilla" of about 300 tons burthen, owned by Capt. Hunter and built at Portsmouth, near this city, has proceeded down theriver, and will complete her cargo and outfit at Montreal with the view of proceeding to Liverpool. An experiment of this kind has often been spoken of, but the "Lilla" is the first lake vessel which has actually been sent down the river for thepurpose of an ocean voyage. We have not heard of her arrival in Montreal.

A report was in circulation this morning, that she had grounded in the Lachine Rapids, but we think this is without any foundation. It is highly improbable, to say the least, that a decent of the Lachine Rapids would be attempted. - Kingston News.
