p.2 A Serious Accident occured at the Steam Boat Landing yesterday, about 11 1/2 o'clock. As the steamer Canada was coming up to the Wharf, the fastening of one of her fenders gave way, this brought the upper end over with a smart blow....(injuring two men on wharf, both expected to live.) [Brockville Recorder]

p.3 The Rochester American, of Friday, states that the schooner Rainbow, Captain Hall, left ( ) on the 25th December last, for Kingston with a cargo of tallow. Soon after she left there was a severe gale, and nothing could be found of either vessel or crew. Some thirty days since the owner of the vessel received his insurance - all parties being satisfied that the vessel had sunk, and the crew found a watery grave. On Thursday the vessel came into port, the crew all well, and the schooner in fine condition. It appears that the vessel was frozen in the ice among the Duck Islands, out of sight of any one, and there waited for spring!

The Oswego Advertiser gives the names of 140 steamers, schooners, etc. owned and navigated upon the American side of Lake Ontario.
