p.2 steamer Cherokee back in port, Lt. Davis in command.

The U.S. armed schooner Harrison, Capt. Knapp, is paying a friendly visit to this port. She is a very handsome little vessel, and her crew are a very gentlemanly set of fellows. They have been very attentive to all persons who (visited the vessel). (article damaged)

The schooner New Brunswick, of Saint Catharines, C.W., Capt. Charles G. Fortier, arrived in this port last Sunday morning from Quebec, having on board 450 tons of railroad iron destined for Cleveland, Ohio, for which port she sailed on Tuesday in company with the schooner Welland, into which vessel the New Brunswick lightened 150 tons of her cargo to enable her to pass the canals. This vessel has paid the largest amount of canal tolls collected from any one craft, say £53. We believe that it is the intention of her enterprising owner, Thomas R. Merritt, Esq., to send her home to Europe this season with a cargo of flour from his own mills at St. Catharines, Welland Canal. [Herald]
