p.2 A Steam Boat, built by Mr. Drummond at Stuart's Point, was launched this morning at 8 o'clock. The name we have not learnt.

Melancholy - Yesterday one of the Durham boats belonging to Messrs. Macpherson, Crane & Co., forwarding merchants while proceeding down the River, near the foot of Long Island, 14 miles from Kingston was capsized, in the gale then blowing, and an aged female passenger, in the cabin at the time drowned. She was returning to Cornwall, from a visit she had been paying to her friends in this town. The boat was loaded at the warehouse of Messrs. M., C. & Co. in Kingston, with 1500 bushels of wheat, the property of Thomas McKay, Esq. New Edinburgh, which we regret to say was entirely lost to the enterprising owner - no insurance having been effected upon it. [Chronicle]
