p.2 The steamer Sovereign, on her way down the river for wood on Tuesday, struck on a shoal, by which she was so much damaged as to render it necessary to haul her out on the railway for repair.

- workers rehired at Lachine Canal Works, after being fired for leaving works during election. [Montreal Gazette]

The Emerald, which was unfortunately run aground in a fog opposite Grand Island the middle of last week, was got off on Saturday and taken up to Buffalo to be overhauled. It is not believed that she has sustained much damage. Great credit is due to the proprietors of two of the Buffalo steamboats, who sent down their vessels to assist in getting the Emerald off, and after the service was performed would accept no remuneration beyond for the wood they consumed. It is a pleasant duty to record acts of this description, and so long as the friendly feelings in which they originate are cultivated by the inhabitants of the two countries, so long will harmony prevail on the frontiers. [Niagara Chronicle]
