p.3 False Report - It has been stated by some of our contemporaries, who wish to raise an excitement for reasons best known to themselves, that the steam boat Gore had a narrow escape from being destroyed at Rochester a short time since, by a gang of Sympathizers. The rumour turns out to be unfounded. The Toronto Colonist denies, on the authority of the Captain of the Gore, the whole statement; and says that neither Captain Dick, nor any of the crew observed any symptoms to destroy or interfere with the boat. The Gore was taken off the Rochester line to supply a vacancy occasioned by the hauling up of one of the proprietor's boats, which ran on another route, and not from fear of her being attacked.
