p.3 The Great Britain Steam Boat arrived here on Monday evening from York with 60 cabin and 100 deck passengers, and with a cargo in produce equal to 3000 barrels of flour. This is the most extensive freight that any craft has ever conveyed to these wharves, and we understand the voyage was made in the usual time. She returned here on Thursday morning, having upwards of 900 passengers on board. On Wednesday the William IV brought up about 600 Emigrants; few from either vessel stopped at Kingston.

Launch of a Schooner - A remarkably handsome schooner, of about 100 tons burthen, which was built at Massassagua Battery, was launched yesterday, in beautiful style, in the presence of an immense number of spectators. She is called the Richard Cartwright, and from her build, promises not to be excelled by any of the sailing craft on the Lake.
