The schooners Richmond and Harman, which were in our list of produce afloat for this port, have gone to Ogdensburgh; the propeller Quincy, with wheat from Chicago, arrived at Kingston a few days since, discharged her cargo, and came over to this port on Thursday last. [Oswego Times 12th]

The propeller Michigan, from Ogdensburgh, arrived yesterday. She has been a week coming from the St. Clair river. She saw no vessels except a schooner, downward bound, in Lake Huron, on Wednesday last.

Our informant was wrong in stating that the Badger State returned to port. A Canadian three-master was lying between the piers on Sunday, which occasioned the mistake. The Badger State got off on Saturday morning at 10 o'clock, and is, we hope, in Lake Erie before this time. [Milwaukee Sentinel 9th]

The bark C.J. Kershaw, Capt. Pierce, from Liverpool, to Cleveland and Detroit, at last accounts had arrived in Lake Ontario, and is probably now in the Welland Canal. She put back twice on account of heavy gales, and left Falmouth, Eng., on the 16th of Oct., and was the last vessel up the St. Lawrence, which was much obstructed by the ice. During the gale which she encountered off the English coast she was obliged to throw overboard 60 tons of iron and her deck-load of crockery. We shall probably have Capt. Pierce's account of the trip. [Buffalo Times 15th]

(We rather think the Kershaw is discharging at Montreal.)
