p.2 Welland Canal - record of business to end of September.

[Oswego Herald quoting St. Catherine's Journal]

p.3 On Saturday we had another severe gale of wind, by which the schooners Kingston and Welland, belonging to the Messrs. Ives, and laden with timber, were driven ashore; the latter on Amherst Isle, and the former above Long Point. The Welland was towed off yesterday by the Cobourg, not much damaged. The Kingston capsized in the gale and drove ashore. She has not been got off yet, but it is expected she will be today, and without great loss. The crews of both vessels were saved, and a horse that was on the Kingston when she capsized swam ashore, five miles it is said, but we suppose the distance is exaggerated.
