p.3 Burned To the Water's Edge - Last night the steam-barge Norman, which was in shelter at Macdonald's Cove, caught fire and was burned to the water's edge. She will be a total loss. She was owned by Capt. Collins, of Prince Edward County and was light, having just returned from Oswego, where she had taken a cargo of barley for Richardson & Sons. Insurances on hulls ran out yesterday at noon, so that her owner will probably have no risk on her.

Here & There - Capt. John Donnelly will probably go down and raise the steamer Conqueror. He says he can do it.

Some anxiety was felt in regard to the prop. California, commanded by Capt. Trowell, jr., but she has reached Sarnia safely and is by this time in good quarters at St. Catharines.

The steamer Hero left for Picton at 3:30 o'clock this afternoon. She will return this evening and lay up.
