Capt. Sutherland,

Will commence on Thursday the 20th Instant, to run twice a week, between Hamilton and Kingston, calling at Toronto and intermediate ports.

April 12th, 1848.

Change of Route - The splendid new schooner, Jane Ann Marsh, built here last winter, Capt. Janes, leaves this evening for Rochester, loaded with 10,000 bushels of Wheat, and 30,000 feet of Lumber, consigned to J. Williams & Co. This is her first trip. We wish her every success.

The schooner, Anne Jane Brown, left yesterday with a cargo of 5,000 bushels of Wheat and 30,000 feet of Lumber; consigned to the above firm. [Port Hope Advertiser]

Wrecks - The schooner Maid of the Mill, of Port Hope, Capt. Wallace, arrived here yesterday from Rochester, in ballast. Capt. Wallace brings intelligence of the loss of the schooner Odd Fellow, of Port Hope, which was driven ashore about eighteen miles west of the mouth of the Genesee River, in the heavy gale of Tuesday last. It is feared she will prove a total wreck.

Her cargo consisted chiefly of Plaster. We have not learned the amount of loss likely to be sustained by the proprietors, but we understand it will be considerable.

We are informed that the vessel is insured for two thirds of her value.

It is reported that several other vessels are ashore in the same neighborhood; we have not heard the names of any mentioned. [ibid]
