p.2 We learn from the Kent Advertiser of the 29th ult., that the barque Montreal, of Chatham, C.W., was wrecked on Sunday evening, the 24th ult., on one of a cluster of small islands, called the Sisters, near Point au Pelee, Lake Erie. The Montreal had on board at the time about 10,000 bushels of wheat, fully insured. The remaining part of the cargo was composed principally of potash and tobacco, partly insured. Upon the vessel there was an insurance of £1000, which may cover one half the loss. Fortunately no lives were lost.

Died - In Montreal, on the 2nd instant, Capt. A. O'Connor, formerly of the Lord Elgin Steamer, aged 31 years.
