NEW SCHOONER.

We understand Messrs. H. Jones & Co.'s new Schooner Sorel, was towed into port yesterday afternoon, by the Jacques Cartier. She was built during the past winter by Messrs. D. & H. McCarthy, of Sorel, and is pronounced by all who have seen her, one of the finest vessels ever built for our inland navigation. Shei is expected to carry 2000 barrels of flour under hatches, - not drawing over 6 1/2 feet water. Every attention has been paid to the masts, rigging, etc., and she is found, in every respect, as well as a vessel can be.

We are happy to hear that the Montreal Mining Company have taken up this fine vessel to go to the Bruce Mines, on Lake Huron, for a cargo of copper ore. She is to commence this morning to take in cargo for the Company. [Montreal Courier]
