p.2 Loss Of The Commerce - The inquiry into the circumstances connected with the wreck of the Commerce took place at Port Maitland on Friday the 17th instant. It was conducted by Dr. Jarron, Warden, and Messrs. Farell and Imlach, magistrates of the District of Niagara. After a most minute and careful investigation, the masters of both vessels were bound over to stand their trial at the next Niagara Assizes. Agents from an Insurance Company, and for Macpherson & Crane, were present at the inquiry, with, we understand, a view towards procuring evidence on which to found a civil suit against the Despatch.

Welland Canal - During the first month of traffic through the Canal, 216 vessels passed through, against 196 up to the same date last year, 62 were bound up to American ports, and 54 down; 55 up to Canadian ports, and 44 down; 50 of the down freights were agricultural produce, and 45 were products of the Canadian forest of which 13 were for Oswego.
