p.2 Last Tuesday night about 11 o'clock, the steam boat Great Britain ran foul of the schooner Margaret Miller, Capt. Sinclair, laden with wheat and flour, by which the schooner was thrown on her beam ends and greatly damaged.

THE OTTAWA AND RIDEAU FORWARDING COMPANY, hereby notify their numerous customers, that they are compelled to suspend their operations, for a short time, in consequence of the Bywash at Long Island giving way. They regret exceedingly that such an unfortunate accident should have taken place, more particularly at this busy season, creating a great disappointment to the public, in the detention that it may cause in forwarding goods. They are in hopes that, in the course of two weeks, they will be ready to resume their operations of which due notice will be given.

E. CUSHING, Agent.
