Port Stanley has now a brisk and business-like appreance. The Mohawk steamer runs twice a-week from this place to Buffalo and back, touching at the intermediate Canada ports. The Telegraph plies from Port Stanley to Cleveland, twice a-week, also touching at Morpeht; and when the trade requires it, our Detroit neighbors lend a hand to accommodate our people. The steamboat Ruby, of Detroit, entered this port on Sunday last, with a full cargo of British law and justice. She was chartered to bring from Sandwich, his honor Judge McLean, John Price, Esq., Q.C., and a host of lawyers, who preferred the lake route from Sandwich to Port Stanley, and thence to London by express coaches, to the long hard route from Chatham. - London Prototype
