p.2 coroner's Inquest at Smiths Falls on 21st October; lock laborer was struck in the head by a crank of one of the crabs attached to the Locks, while letting through the steamer Thomas McKay.

The new Steam-Boat Traveller came down the lake last night, and proceeded this morning to Prescott. She is a most beautiful boat, schooner rigged, and it is said that in speed she excels any boat on our inland waters.

We are happy to hear that the report of the barge Quebec having been lost, is without foundation. She was seen yesterday morning at Cobourg by Capt. Ives of the schooner Kingston, having suffered nothing in the late gales but the loss of her shears.

p.3
