p.3 Report of Committee about granting money for improvement of Trent.

House of Assembly votes £9000 for making a safe harbour at the port of Windsor, between Cobourg and Toronto.

Steam Boat Canada - As this boat was entering our harbour on Friday night, from Kingston, the wind blowing a gale at the time, she was driven on the east shore, where she grounded so firmly, that it has been impossible to get her off. The high winds that have prevailed since that time, have wore her about until she is now a perfect wreck and will soon go to pieces. All the cargo and furniture, we learn, have been saved.

She was commanded by Captain Peavey, an experienced and competent seaman, who we learn was a part owner, and no blame we believe can be attached to him for the accident. [Oswego Palladium]
