p.2 We are sorry to say that an accident, similar to the one which lately occurred to the William IV, befell the St. George while on her way up the lake last week. It will be the means of detaining her in port for several days, to the great loss of the owners, and inconvenience of the public. The St. George proves to be an excellent sea-boat.

The Steamer William Avery touched at this Port yesterday, for the first time, on her way from Sackets Harbor to Ogdensburg. She is a very neat and commodious vessel.

The old favorite Steam Packet Canada we regret to state, accidentally took fire on Saturday evening, while lying at the Wharf. The flames were reduced after a considerable period by the great exertions of the Fire Companies, and the people generally, without injury. Capt. Richardson's card on the subject will be seen in another place. [York Courier]
