p.2 Vessel Burnt - The vessel Vermont was burnt at Port Maitland, on the 26th ult. The flames spread so rapidly, that all efforts to save her were fruitless. The Captain got out his safe, but one of the men lost about $30. The cargo consisted of 100 tons of oil-cake; 1,400 bbls. of flour; 100 bales of feathers, 2 of wool, and 15 to 20 tons of butter. The Journal, which furnishes these particulars, does not state the amount of the loss.

On Tuesday night (during a thick fog) the steamer Novelty, on her downward passage from Belleville, ran ashore on the "Brothers."
