-New Tug Steamer - The tug steamer Wales arrived here this morning, from Brockville, on her first trip. She was built this Spring at Brockville, and is 115 feet in length, over all; breadth of beam 21 feet, and depth of hold 12 feet. Her engines are very powerful, and she is in every way fitted for what she is intended - the lake trade. - She is owned and was built in the Ship-yard of Messrs. Chaffey, Bros. of this city. Her speed is great, having made the trip from Brockville in five hours, which is considered good speed with new machinery. She is almost the largest tug on these lakes, and will be a great accession to the lake craft. She leaves tomorrow for Toronto for a tow.

-Imports - 21,22.

-Magistrates Court - a man charged with enticing soldiers to desert, he was a hand on board sch. N.C. Ford; testimony of captain and others.
