  Shipping Intelligence.
The steamer St. George arrived from Montreal yesterday at noon, with the ship Canada, ship Caledonia, and brig Leo in tow. She left for the same port last night with the Souvenir, Celeste and Favourite in tow.

The steamship St. George returned from Red Island yesterday forenoon, and reports having passed 14 vessels bound up between Green Island and this port-among them the brig Thomas and a black painted bark, supposed to be the Vindicator, with a general cargo for Quebec, from Liverpool. Saw nothing of the Albion.

The steamship St. George leaves this morning to supply the provision depots on Anticosti, &c.

Launch.-This morning, Mr. Sewell safely launched a splendid and substantially built ship of 900 tons, new measurement, called the Fingal. She is to be commanded by Captain Tierney, who superintended her construction.

Money Orders.-The London correspondent of the New York Journal of Commerce states that the Money Order Department of the London Post Office has become so completely a banking concern that a building has been erected for it near the central office, giving it seemingly all the importance of a separate establishment. He justly adds that it will be impossible to foretell, or perhaps it would lend to incredulity to state the magnitude to which this money department is destined to extend. As the penny post gets more perfected, the advantages of the money order office will become more evident, until it will prove of itself to be a vast source of revenue to the country. It is generally understood that our Provincial Government will submit a plan of Post Office reform at the approaching Session of Parliament, and we trust that the money order system will forma a part of the plan-at least, that provision will be made for testing it at a hundred of the leading offices.-Toronto Globe.

The steamer St. George arrived her yesterday, from Red Island. She called in at the Quarantine Station on her way up, by which we learn that there are 1300 sick on the island. The list we published yesterday will shew the number of vessels and passengers there on Friday last. We learn with much sorrow that the number of orphans on the island is now double what we last mentioned; it being now stated that there are at least one hundred. Capt. Boxer, we learn, went up to Montreal last night, on business connected with the Quarantine Station

A brig, not yet boarded-Wind W.

Shipping Intelligence.
The steamer Alliance arrived from Montreal this morning, and towed down the ships Annie and Jemima.

The ship Sea King, Dunn, cleared at New York for Quebec on the 26th May; and the ship Oriental, sailed on the 27th, also for Quebec.

The brig Hibernia, Ryan, from Wexford, at New York, 26th May, reports that on the 28th April, in lat. 47, 40, long. 43, spoke Br. Brig Henry, from Liverpool for Quebec, in distress, leaking-had great difficulty to keep her free.

Scientific Prophecy.-Newton expresses his deliberate opinion that cohesion, light, heat, electricity, and the communication of the brain with the muscles, are all to be referred to one and the same cause, an ether or spiritus which pervades all bodies. We might smile at such an opinion from many quarters; and had Newton been only the author of the "Principia," we might, says the Dublin Review, perhaps think his head a little exalted by the excitement attending the close of an arduous labor, (though in truth, the scholium, from which the above is extracted does not appear in the first edition;) but when we consider his prediction, that the diamond would be found to be combustible, that, the earth has between five and six times its weight of water, and others which have turned out correct, we feel something like a presentiment that the opinion just cited, may in some degree share the same destiny.

With reference to the sickness at the Quarantine Station we have learned nothing additional since our last. The most active measures are being taken, however, by the proper authorities, for relieving the necessities of the unfortunate people detained there, as well as of those who are lodged in the shed on the India Wharf.

The steam-ferry-boat St. George has been hired for the use of the Quarantine Establishment, and placed under the controul[sic] of Dr. Douglas. She left on Monday evening for Grosse Isle, with provisions.

We learn from the Journal de Québec of yesterday, that two members of the Canadian clergy, the Rev. Mr. Taschereau, of the Seminary, and the Rev. Mr. Trahan, missionary at St. Sylvestre, have solicited and obtained leave from the Archbishop to be sent down to Grosse Isle, to assist the Roman Catholic clergymen already there. They leave this morning for that place, accompanied by the Rev. Mr. Moylan, assistant to the Rev. Mr. McMahon.

Shipping Intelligence.
The steamship St. George returned from Grosse Isle yesterday, and reports having passed three vessels in ballast, and a deep bark, bound up.

The bark Great Britain, Wilson, cleared at New York for Quebec on the 29th May.

Launch.-Yesterday morning, Mr. Thomas Oliver safely launched, from his ship-yard St. Rochs, the splendid new ship Viceroy, of 1000 tons measurement. She is to be commanded by Capt. McMahone, who superintended her construction.

The subjoined extract from a letter received yesterday by the Editor of the Mercury from the medical superintendent at Grosse Isle, shows that matters are not quite so bad there as has been presented:--
"Grosse-Isle, June 2d, 1847.
Sir,-As I understand most exaggerated reports and prevalent in your town respecting the state of distress and misery among the emigrants now here, I think it my duty to request you would give publicity to the following facts:-1st. There is no distress from want of food in any vessel now here, every person on board receives daily a pound of biscuit, flour, oatmeal or soft bread, the same being provided by the vessel according to the imperial Passenger Act. As a proof of this, I may state that yesterday all the vessels(22 in number) that have been here eight days, were visited by Mr. Symes, with a small steamer loaded with provisions, sent by the Chief Agent of Emigrants-these provisions were distributed gratuitously to the most destitute, and though Mr. Symes found no difficulty in getting them to accept the tea, sugar, pork, and soft bread-yet none of them would have oatmeal or biscuit, though both were fresh and excellent of their kind; these were brought back and remain now on board the steamer-this must be conclusive as to the non-existence of starvation.

Though there is, undoubtedly, much sickness and many deaths, yet the number is much exaggerated. Up to 12 o'clock, on Saturday, the total number of deaths in the hospitals, from the commencement of the season to that hour, was 116. The names, ages, and the vessels in which the persons came, will be ascertained on application to Dr. Parent. It will be seen that the majority are young children. The disease from which the greatest number of deaths take place is dysentery, brought on by long want before embarking. The number of orphans does not exceed twenty, and they are all specially cared for, and receive milk and nourishment from convalescents, who are paid for the duty. I am glad to hear that the Rev. Mr. McMahon is making arrangements for their reception and care in town, and they will be sent up immediately.

In almost every case, the passengers embarked in ill health, and in some few instances recovered their health on the voyage, not withstanding all their privations.

The number now in the Hospitals, sheds, churches and tents is under 1100. There are six medical men in attendance, and every exertion is being made by the Board of Works to get up fever sheds. An intelligent active superintendent

Quarantine Intelligence
Copy of a letter addressed by the Assistant Secretary of the Province to A. Campbell, Esq.,:--
Secretary's Office
Montreal, 2nd June, 1847.
Sir,-In reply to your letter of the 31st ult., I have the honor, by command of the Governor General, to inform you that the Medical Superintendent at Grosse Isle is instructed, by this day's post, to allow the transfer of the rigging and ships' stores on board of vessels at the Quarantine Station, into barges, for conveyance to Quebec. The transhipments to be made, however, while the passengers are on shore.
I have the honor to be, &c.
E. Parent,
Assist. Secretary.

A. Campbell, Esq.

[This letter is not meant to convey the idea that the captains of vessels at the Quarantine Station are to divest their crafts of their rigging, and, sending it to Quebec, only leave so many hulks at Grosse Isle; but that, vessels having new rigging, as part of their cargoes, for ships on the stocks here, may have such portion of cargo forwarded to Quebec, that the shipbuilders may not suffer from delay. The somewhat vague manner in which this is intimated in the communication above, would seem to require this explanation.]

The Commissariat have given notice that tenders will be received till Saturday next, for the supply of such quantities of Bread and Fresh Beef as may be required for the use of the immigrants at Grosse Isle, from time to time, or daily, as may be ordered during the season of navigation this year; and another notice from Dr. Parent, the Inspecting Physician, intimates that twenty men and women will find employment at Grosse Isle, as nurses, with excellent wages. The statement of Dr. Douglas, the medical superintendent is now before the public, from which it would appear that although there is much sickness and many deaths at the station, yet the number has been much exaggerated. The condition of those detained on board the vessels is truly distressing, as will be seen by the letter of Capt. Mitchell of the Argo, which we publish below.

Grosse Isle, 1st June, 1847.
Messrs. Allan Gilmour & Co.
Gentlemen,-I wrote you on the 26th May last, and now again write you to say that things here are daily getting worse, and if there is not some large and comprehensive plan of relief adopted and acted upon immediately, our situation here will become fearful. There is not one of my sick removed out of the ship, not for the want of will on the part of Dr. Douglas here, but the want of accommodation to put the sick in, on shore; there are many of the ships here in the same state-the only relief we get is in carrying them to the grave which is a daily occurrence. While I am writing, I have three corpses on board, and have had more or less every day since I wrote you last, with the exception of yesterday. We have now some eight or nine cases of fever on board, and it will no doubt get worse. I have done all that can be done to prevent it, as regards ventilation and cleanliness; the ports are out fore and aft, the middle deck washed and whitewashed, and we must now resign ourselves to our fate whatever it may be.

You will be able to judge what prospect there is of us being relieved from here, when I tell you that there are about 35 sail of vessels here, with from 250 to 500 passengers on board, and more or less in a state of sickness, and only a few of them have had their sick landed; all the sheds and hospitals on shore are full of sick already; there are at least 12,000 passengers here on board the ships, and if we are to remain until accommodation is made to receive these people on shore, (there being no appearance at the present time of making a beginning with the accommodation,) I leave you to judge when you may expect to see the ships, for I will not go the length to say that you will see us with them, although I am quite well and hoping for the best. There are five of my crew laid up, and I am doubtful it is fever. We are almost without medical aid, with the exception of what Dr. Douglas is able to give us, which I believe is all that is in his power; for he, poor man, is almost worn out amongst the sick on shore and on board the vessels.

Surely it is in the power of the authorities to devise some way of relieving so many human beings from misery for famine will soon begin to appear along with fever, and it will do its work;--many of mine have just the pound of bread that is allowed from the ship and their water to subsist on, which no doubt will keep a person from starving, but is it enough to keep the body in health to prevent disease? No single individual can help us, however willing; the relief wanted is too great for any single person to undertake; it wants the strength of Government and the united wisdom of all the wise heads that can be got to devise an immediate plan of relief. Gentlemen, this is a true statement of things here. I believe there are many of the ships here worse off than myself, and very few better: our number of deaths is now nineteen.
Your obedient servant,
Alexnader Mitchell.
Ship Argo.

The vessels arrived this morning report ten or twelve more at hand.

The ship Albion, Allan, proceeded for Montreal yesterday afternoon in tow of the steamer Princess Victoria.

The steamer St. George arrived from Montreal this morning with the ship Riverdale and three laden barges in tow.

A schooner arrived here yesterday from Little Metis, brought up a part of the goods saved (in a damaged state) from on board the wreck of the bark Rory O'More. They are to be forwarded to Montreal immediately.

In the Chronicle of Wednesday we mentioned that the brig Henry, from Liverpool for Quebec, was spoken on the 28th April, in a leaky condition, by the brig Hibernia, at New York. On reference to the New York Shipping Gazette, we perceive that it was the brig Henry, Johnson, of Montrose.

The brig Thomas, from Cienfuegos for Quebec, was spoken in lat. 31, 43, long. 78, 07, 17 days out.

[To the Editor of the Morning Chronicle.]
Sir,-Too much praise cannot be awarded to the Roman Catholic Clergy, for their zeal and intrepidity in the hour of peril, as well as the promptitude with which they have stepped forward to administer spiritual consolation to the suffering and dying emigrants at Grosse Isle.-But, sir-is it to be supposed that none emigrate to these shores, but persons professing the Roman Catholic faith? and are our fellow brethren of the Protestant persuasion to be left in the hour of sickness and death, "no one caring for their souls?" What are the English and Scotch churches doing? What are the Methodists and other dissenters doing? The answer reverberates as yet,-nothing. Let them justify themselves if they can.-Hoping this may meet the eye of some of the official members of the protestant Churches and awaken them to a sense of feeling, if not of duty,
I remain,
A Protestant.
Quebec, June 3rd, 1847.

A match at Cricket came off between the 52nd Light Infantry and the Rifle Brigade, on Monday last, at the Montreal Club Ground, in front of McGill College. The weather was favourable and the play on both sides is stated to have been excellent. The Courier gives full particulars. The first innings of the 52nd were 53; second ditto 47; making 100.-the first innings of the Rifle Brigade were 51; their second, 50; total, 101; the latter winning the game by one ball.

  Shipping Intelligence
Wrecks.-We copy the following from the Exchange Register of yesterday:--
"We learn from Wm. Stevenson, Esq., who arrived here this morning from Halifax, that the Miracle, from Liverpool to Quebec, with passengers, was lost on the Magdalen Islands about the 26th ult., and that sixty of her passengers were drowned in landing, and that the remainder had arrived at Pictou in a sickly and destitute state. And that the Zenobia, with 179 passengers for Quebec, was wrecked at Menadien, on or about the 26th ult. Also a vessel from Sunderland, with coals and goods, (name not known) was wrecked on Scatterie Island, about the same time."

The steamer North America arrived from Montreal on Saturday, at noon, with the bark Mahaica, brig Safeguard and two barges in tow.

The Diamond Harbour Floating Dock, and all her gear, was sold by auction on Saturday, by order of the trustees, and adjudged to Mr. H.S. Dalkin, for £1225.

Capt. Burke, of the brig Dew Drop, arrived on Saturday, reports having shipped a sea on the 28th April, which washed away life-boat, split maintop and try-sails and shifted the ballast, which hove his ship on her beam-ends.

Halifax, May 24.-Cleared-Schr. Conservative, Myers, for Quebec, sugar, oil, &c. 22nd- Brigt. Stephen Binney, Jones, for Quebec, sugar and herrings.

New York, June 1st-Cleared-Ship Harrison, Burkett, for Quebec.

We are sorry to learn that an accident occurred to the steamer John Munn on her downward trip, on Saturday night last. While passing through Lake St. Peter, it was discovered that a partition separating one of her state-rooms from the boilers had ignited. Through the active exertions immediately employed, the fire was suppressed after considerable injury being done to some of her splendid staterooms.

The Legislative Assembly were engaged until a late hour on Saturday evening in discussing the question regarding the Speakership. After a long debate which continued until eleven o'clock, a resolution was come to declaring that Sir Allan M'Nab had not vacated his seat for Hamilton, and consequently still retained the office of Speaker of the House. The only dissentient was the member for Quebec, Mr. Aylwin.

Arrival of the Hibernia
The mail brought to Boston by the Royal Mail Steamer reached here this morning at 8 o'clock: there is every reason to suspect that an express arrived here early on Thursday morning. The following is from a slip issued by the Herald Office, which contains all the information brought by the Hibernia:
By this vessel we have dates to the 19th ult., and our usual European files.

The still higher prices of bread stuffs, and the "distress" of the Money Market continued to be the subjects of greatest importance. The first pinches all classes alike; the last no doubt increases the general difficulty; but is the peculiar grievance or misfortune of the traders.

The Ministry appear to have failed in their most important measures. That greatest and most important of all-for good or for evil-the Irish Poor Law has been shorn of those clauses in which its strength chiefly rested. The education bill, the health of towns bill, and several other measures seem likely to go the same way, as so many other Whig measures have hitherto gone-they will gradually fall to pieces.

Under all these circumstances, it is no wonder that there are rumours of change. Coalitions are talked of, and a speedy dissolution seems certain.

In Ireland, of course, the distress still continues, disease following hard on the steps of destitution.

The Pope had summoned a meeting of Notables, to consult on organic and administrative reform. It is not so creditable to the Papal Government, though proceeding, perhaps more from weakness than will, that it has suppressed the publication of a newspaper at the request of the Austrian Ambassador.

In Portugal things still remain unsettled; and at Lisbon a revolutionary tragedy was enacted, by means of some conspirators, who released the prisoners from a jail. These people immediately attempted mischief, and were not brought to submission, till several had been shot.

The appearance of the coming crops throughout Europe is stated to be very favourable.

Among the passengers in the Hibernia, is the right Honorable Countess of Elgin.

The Earl of Elgin is to have the green riband vacant by the death of the Duke of Argyle.

The following order has been issued by the Lord Steward of the Queen's household:-Her Majesty having taken into consideration the high price of provisions and especially bread stuffs, has been graciously pleased to command that from the date of this 2nds only of flour shall be used in Her Majesty's household, and that the daily allowance of bread shall be 1 lb. per head to each person dieted in the palace.

The London bakers have again raised the price of the 4 lb. loaf ½d., so that the best bread is now sold at 3d. a pound, while bread of an inferior quality is sold at the rate of 10½d. The 4 lb. loaf.

An emigrant child, apparently in good health, was suddenly seized with a pain in the head, after landing this morning, and expired almost immediately. An inquest has not yet taken place.

Our Trinity Board have given notice, that from this date all steamers or other vessels having on board over 100 emigrant passengers, shall proceed to the wharf near the Canal, and there land them, under a penalty of £10.

The Board of Health at a meeting on Friday last, resolved that an advertisement be put in the public papers, and placards placed upon the walls of the city, notifying the inhabitants that a tour of inspection will be made by the members of the Board, in the course of this week, and calling upon them to have their premises cleansed and purified, with a view to prevent disease.

The Quebec and Queen are to be employed for a limited period, for the conveyance of Emigrants from Grosse Isle direct to Montreal.

The Duke of Argyle proposes to ship above 1000 persons from his estates in the Highlands, to Canada.-(Sunday Paper.)

The following is a list of vessels arrived at Grosse Isle up to Saturday evening last, since the 28th ult., the date of our last report:

We are indebted to Messrs. Pembertons for the following extract of a letter giving the melancholy account of the loss of the brig Carricks, of Whitehaven. R. Thompson, master, from Sligo to this port, with passengers:--
"Cape Rosier, 19th May, 1847.
"I am sorry to inform you that the brig Carricks, was wrecked about four miles to the eastward of this place, and shocking to relate, out of 167 passengers, only 48 reached the shore-the crew, except one boy, were all saved. Little will be saved, but what there is, together with the wreck, will be sold for the benefit of all concerned on Saturday next."-(Exchange Register.)

We copy the following additional particulars of the wreck of the ship Miracle, from the Halifax Morning Post of the 3rd instant, received yesterday:--
"Information was received yesterday, by express from Pictou, giving account of the loss of the ship Miracle, of 636 tons, Elliott, master, from Liverpool, G.B., for Quebec, with 408 passengers. The Miracle went on shore on the Magdalen Islands, on the 19th May. 61 of her passengers are reported to have been drowned or killed in landing, and 13 had died of fever during the passage. The schr. Mahone Bay Packet arrived at Pictou on Saturday morning with 116 of the passengers, and 14 of the crew. Two of the passengers by the packet had died. The schr. Sophie had also arrived at Pictou with more of the passengers, and was reported to have fever on board."

More Wrecks.-A ship from England, bound to Quebec, with 180 passengers, was cast away at Port Nova, on the 23rd May.-Crew and passengers saved.

A brig from England, for Quebec, was cast away on the 19th May, at St. Paul's. Crew saved.

A letter received here yesterday, states that the brig Henry, Johnson, of Montrose, bound to Quebec, with stoves, put in at Sydney, C.B., on the 26th May, being in a leaky state, and having been obliged to throw part of her cargo overboard, in a gale of wind on the 20th April.

We learn from the St. John (N.B.) Courier, that seven other passenger vessels had arrived at Quarantine, all of them with sickness and deaths on the passage. The Aldeboran, of whose arrival there, with sickness, we some time since informed our readers, was still at Quarantine, and a number more of her passengers had died. The diseases are mostly typhus and ship fever. There were upwards of 2,000 passengers either on board the vessels or on shore at the Quarantine Station.

Accounts received from the Magdalen Islands represent the people of the settlements there in a state of great destitution. Flour is said to be at $20 per barrel.

We understand that it is expected the Electric Telegraph to connect Quebec with the United States sea-board, will be completed about the middle of August next.

On the 5th instant, there were 21,000 passengers at Grosse Isle. 120 interments took place that day. The number of deaths on the voyage out is stated at 960; 700 had died at the station; there were 1500 sick on board the vessels, and 1100 sick in the different receptacles on the island.

The Marine Hospital is fast filling up with sick emigrants, and we are informed that it is in contemplation to erect sheds on the vacant ground attached to it.

  Shipping Intelligence
The brig Henry, Johnston, of Montrose, mentioned before as having put into Sydney, arrived here this morning, and has on board 7 of the crew of the Imogene, Foreman, wrecked on Scatterie. Capt. J. also reports the brig England's Queen, of Sunderland, wrecked at St. Paul's-crew saved.

In an extract of a letter dated Cape Rosier, May 19th, which appeared in our paper of Monday last, announcing the melancholy fate of the brig Carricks, R. Thompson, master, from Sligo, which was lost near that place with all her passengers except 48, and one boy belonging to her crew, the number of passengers was stated to be 167; so that 119 of them would appear to have perished, and, with the boy, in all 120 persons. In looking over a file of Irish papers received by last mail, we have met with the following extract from a Sligo paper, according to which the number drowned, including the boy would be 129, instead of 120, unless the ill-fated ship had already lost 9 of her passengers before the awful catastrophe by which so many of the Foreign Secretary's late tenants were consigned to a water grave: "Sligo, May 1. From the 5th of January up to this date, 3,239 persons left this port direct for America. Of this number 176 went in the Carricks, which was chartered by Lord Palmerston."

The steam-ferry-boat St. George came up from Grosse Isle yesterday, and reports having passed 15 vessels bound up. There were 35 ships at that place, with passengers, when she left yesterday morning.

The bark Urania, Smallman, arrived yesterday, came up from Grosse Isle without a clearance from the Medical gentlemen in charge there.-It is said she will be ordered back.

Capt. Talbot, of the Lord Seaton, arrived yesterday, reports the St. Lawrence, from Aberdeen with passengers, at Grosse Isle.

The steamer St. George arrived from Montreal yesterday with the ship Great Britain in tow.-She leaves for the same port this morning with the bark Alexina, bark Bess Grant, and brig Aid in tow.

The arrivals this morning report three square rigged, bound up, as having anchored above Point St. Laurent, at high water this morning.

The steamer Canada arrived from Montreal yesterday, at noon, with the ship Sophia Moffatt, bark Jane and bark Adelaide in tow. She leaves again for the same port to-day with the bark Flora Muir, brig Keepsake, brig Mary and brigt. Leveret.

The City Council at its meeting of last night adopted the petition of the inhabitants of St. Rochs, against the erection of emigrant sheds near the Marine Hospital, and on motion of Dr. Rousseau it was resolved that the Chief Agent for Emigration be notified to that effect.

A friend has just put into our hands the Toronto Christian Guardian of the 9th inst., from which we learn that the Union of the Wesleyan-Methodist Church in Canada with the British Church of that denomination, has been consummated, the votes being, 82 for and 8 against it, at the final sitting of the Canadian Conference.

We are glad to learn that the Government is taking the most energetic means to strengthen the sanatory establishment at Grosse Isle. A staff of twelve medical men still assist Dr. Douglas, and all the subsidiary aids of food and nursing will be, and are, liberally supplied. This is a most important matter; for pestilence, once let loose, spares neither rich nor poor.-Montreal Gazette.

A Liverpool brig arrived at New York, reports the loss of the Spanish ship Iullo, from Havannah, on the 21st ult., by running foul of an iceberg. The ship filled and sunk, and of 58 souls on board, 34 only were saved by taking to the boats. The rest went down with the ship.

It is stated in the Albany Argus of the 9th that Santa Anna has given up the command of the army of the East, to assume the duties of President. He was to enter the Capital on the 19th May. Several towns on the coast had been captured by Commodore Perry. The vomito had made its appearance at Vera Cruz, but few cases had as yet occurred. Later advices had been received from Monterey, which state that Gen. Taylor was preparing for a move and would probably start for San Luis about the 1st of June, where another grand battle was expected, which would probably be the final struggle.

We are sorry to record the very alarming sickness that prevails at our Quarantine Station among the large number of emigrants lately arrived from Europe. Up to the 5th instant, the number of arrivals was 25,400. Of this number there died at sea 1097; the number of deaths at the Quarantine Hospital and on shipboard up to the same date was 900; the number of sick in Hospital up to June 4th, was 1150, and on board the ships at the Station at the same date, 1200; making the total number of sick at that time to be 2700. Up to yesterday we believe there was little or no diminution in the sickness, the number of vessels detained in Quarantine being 43. Of those passengers who have been cleared from the Quarantine and come up Quebec, about 300 have subsequently fallen sick and have been lodged in the Marine Hospital. The health of the city however, we are happy to state, has not yet been at all affected.

As a proof of Canadian enterprise, we would here advert to the fleet of new vessels that have been built at our port during the past winter, numbering about 30, all of a heavy burthen. Several of them have sailed with valuable cargoes, principally bread stuffs, and others are now completing their loadings. Among them we would mention the ship Jemima, built by T.C. Lee, Esq., and lately cleared at the Custom House, with a freight entirely consisting of Canada produce, which with the vessel is valued at £30,000. We believe the keels of about 12 others have been laid down, which will be ready, there is every reason to expect, early in the fall.

We have accounts of two wrecks which have occurred of passenger vessels, attended with a considerable loss of life. One of them is the brig Carricks, of Whitehaven, from Sligo to this port, wrecked about four miles to the eastward of Cape Rosier, and out of 167 passengers, only 48 reached the shore. The other is the ship Miracle, from Liverpool, Elliot, master, with 408 passengers. This vessel went ashore on the Magdalen Islands on the 19th May, and 61 of her passengers are reported to have been drowned or killed in landing. Thirteen of this vessel's passengers died of fever previous to the wreck, and two of those picked up died subsequently of the same disease.

As regards the weather, we cannot describe it better than by quoting the words of our national bard-"the rain it raineth every day"-and we may add,-in right good earnest; none of your drizzling, Scotch-mist-like showers, but heavy, soaking rain, accompanied, however, with a warm atmosphere, the thermometer ranging from 65 to 70, and at Montreal, on Thursday evening last, our correspondent informs us they had it as high as 85. Vegetation is going on rapidly, and notwithstanding the late period when the ground was clear of snow, there is at present every prospect of an average crop. Since the receipt of the news by the Hibernia, a considerable rise has taken place in our grain and provision markets. Flour is at 13s. 9d. a[sic] 45s. Here, and at Montreal it has been selling at from 42s. 6d. to 44 s.; at New York on the 5th instant, prices ranged from $9 to $9, 25. Since then it has taken a slightly downward tendency, and on the 7th it was difficult of sale at $9.
