Full Text

p.3 The Emerald Steamer struck a rock near Black Rock and received some injury, but has undergone the requisite repairs and resumed her trips. One of the crew was drowned.

Capt. Vanallen's exertions to save the passengers were so great that he was completely exhausted, and when he was got out of the water it was with some difficulty that he was restored to animation.

The Schooner Thistle, of and from Kingston, with a cargo of merchandize for this port and Port Stanley, on Monday morning dragged her anchor at the mouth of the Niagara River, and came ashore opposite the Engineer's quarters, where she now remains. She does not make any water, so it is hoped the cargo will not be injured.

The Propeller Beagle, with Government stores on board, has been wrecked at Port Dalhousie, and 3 or 4 Schooners are reported ashore between this port and the 40 Mile Creek. [Niagara Chronicle, Oct. 30th]
