Shipping Intelligence - The steam propeller Adventure, Capt. Taylor, with about 710 barrels of flour on board, consigned to Messrs. R. Langlois & Son, of this city, arrived here, yesterday afternoon, direct from Toronto, which place she left on Thursday evening last; and we understand she has made several stoppages on her way down. She arrived at Montreal on Sunday evening, and did not leave that place until Monday afternoon. The Adventure is a beautiful and substantial built vessel of 53 tons register, was built at Niagara, last spring, and is commanded by Capt. Taylor, an experienced seaman. The Adventure made a trip to Chicago, this summer, and we learn that she is the first vessel that ever hoisted the British flag at that place, and also the first Canadian steamer that passed through the Welland Canal. She is advertised to leave Quebec to-morrow, direct for Toronto, and has good accommodations for several passengers. We hope that her enterprising owners will receive that encouragement, which they are so justly entitled to. - Quebec Gaz.
