p.2 The Accident to the Magnet - Capt. Butterworth, steamer Marion, at Toronto, reports: - "That a portion of the Magnet's bow from the windlass to the stem is almost entirely gone, not a particle of the stem being visible, and nothing of the bow, but a mass of shattered iron. On the side on which she was struck she is cut completely through about half way across and down to the keel, and had it not been for a tight bulk head separating the forecastle from the part cut away, she must have gone down immediately; as it is, she is quite free from water, and the captain expects to make his way up the first fine weather."

Two Boats Daily To the Cape - Mr. Gildersleeve has so arranged matters that there is now communication twice a day between this port and the Cape. One steamer leaves in the morning at 7 o'clock, and returns about noon, and another leaves at 5, to meet, at Cape Vincent, the down express train.

The Lumber Trade - The shipment of lumber from this port has commenced in good earnest, several vessels having cleared within the week, with full cargoes; yesterday, the Maid of the West cleared for Oswego with 141,000 feet on board, and passed the canal without trouble. Others are loading in the basin. [Dundas Warder]
