p.1 We understand that the loss of property on the River St. Lawrence this season has been unprecedented, caused no doubt from the lowness of the waters; no less than seven Barges have been stranded in as many days - 4 belonging to Messrs. M'Pherson and Crane and Company, 1 to Messrs. Hackett & Co., and 1 to Messrs. Ross and Co. We believe that in most cases the property has been insured, so that the loss will fall on a public company. [Montreal Transcript]

p.2 Fire - A disastrous fire occurred at Port Hope, on the morning of Sunday last, the 7th instant. On the roof of the storehouse on the wharf is a small beacon to light the harbour, it happened unfortunately that some of the woodwork took fire, which before it was discovered had gained a great height.....(totally lost). [Cobourg Star]
