p.2 On Tuesday morning, a barge which had been ashore above Lachine, and which had on board a quantity of wheat in a damaged state, was driven down the rapids by the ice and sunk at the foot of the current of St. Mary. A few days ago, another barge, from which a cargo of flour was in course of being landed in a damaged state, was also torn from her moorings opposite Lachine, by the ice, and those on board had barely time to escape in a canoe before the vessel was driven into the rapids. Strange to say, however, she passed down by a channel hitherto unknown, and brought up on Nun's Island without having displaced even her deck load. We hope this new channel now revealed by chance, may prove of utility in the dangerous navigation of the rapids. [Gazette]

p.3 a story about ebb and flow of waters at Cobourg and Port Hope - a possible explanation. [Cobourg Star]
