p.3 The West Wind Accident - A week ago the schr. West Wind of Toronto, bound for Kingston, light, ran ashore a hundred yards off Macdonald's Point, about a mile east of Cobourg. The crew mistook a fire on the shore for the lighthouse. The vessel was scuttled and settled in a bed of sand.
Missing Vessel - Grave doubts are entertained here in regard to the safety of the schooner Prussia, commanded by Capt. Donnelly, and owned by Calvin & Breck, of Garden Island. She left Toledo about a week ago, and this morning had not arrived at the canal. Vessels that left two and three days after her have reported themselves as passing through the canal.
Later - The Prussia has turned up all right. She arrived at Port Colborne this afternoon.
