p.2 Steamer Canada - We learn from the Detroit Journal, that the steamer Canada has been seized by the collector of that port for smuggling, and is to be sold. [Transcript]

British Steamer Mohawk - This vessel, Capt. Herbert, from Penetanguishene, Lake Huron, and last from Amherstburg, is now on the dock of Johnson and Tisdale for painting and repairs. The Mohawk is a neat craft of 135 tons, propelled by two engines, and carrying two eighteen pound guns. These war dogs are stationed fore and aft, and though looking black seem very peaceable, and we imagine from the state of feeling which exists between the two nations, they will never be used except in the courteous tones of friendly salute. [Cleveland Herald]
