p.2 Gallant Conduct - On Tuesday evening last, one of the small steamers that belongs to the Kingston Forwarding Trade, chanced to run ashore at the back of Cedar Island. This being in view of H.M. Dockyard, Mr. Bedford, First Lieutenant of H.M.S. Niagara, and Mr. Lowder, First Lieutenant of the Royal Marines, with a party of sailors and mariners, jumped into a Dock Yard boat and in the twinkling of a bed-post, by the judicious application of chains, etc, righted the little steamer, and sent her down the St. Lawrence on her road rejoicing.
