p.2 Trial of S.P. Hart and Others - at Cobourg; involvement of schooner Guernsey, Capt. Terry, in movement of patriots. [Cobourg Star]

p.3 American Prisoners at Fort Henry - taken in barges down the Rideau Canal by steamer Cataraqui.

The schooner New York of Oswego was capsized in the severe gale of Sunday the 15th inst., and drifted ashore and broke in pieces at Marysburgh near the Ducks. All hands perished. Two of them were alive when she reached the shore, and attempts were made to save them, but the surf ran too furiously, and they were both drowned. Other two men were found dead, lashed to the vessel. She was laden with staves of which a large quantity, and parts of the vessel and her rigging, have been saved.
