p.2 The barge Chippewa, consigned to Macpherson, Crane & Co., with a cargo of wheat, which struck on the rapids while coming down the river some days ago, has, we perceive, floated down to the west side of St. Helen's Island, where she lies stranded. Her cargo, we hear, is nearly a complete loss. [Montreal Gazette]

We understand that the steamer Beagle, on her downward voyage from Toronto with a cargo of wheat, struck on a ledge of rock at Cobourg, and had to be beached to save her from going down. As it is, part of her is sunk in 12 feet water, and the cargo is greatly damaged.
