p.2 The Oakville Steamer has again, we are happy to find, resumed her trips between Hamilton and this Port, touching at Oakville and Port Credit. In a late gale the Oakville was driven upon a sunken rock; which caused sufficient injury to oblige her to proceed to Niagara for repair, and she will now continue her trips so long as the season will permit, which if we are to judge of by the last few days, will not be of long duration.

We perceive that all the other Steamers, have been laid up for the winter, with the exception of the Transit and Traveller, the latter will continue running during the winter, anchoring at the King's wharf near the Garrison. We cannot but wish her every success.

[Toronto Recorder]
