p.2 The wind blew a gale on the lake on Thursday night, and continued until the evening of yesterday. We regret to state that two vessels are ashore at the entrance of our bay. The Albion, belonging to Mr. Proudfoot, of Travalgar, lies inside the bar, full of water. She has 74 hhds. of sugar for Hutchison & Co., fully insured, with smaller amounts of goods for other merchants. The Eberts owned by Messrs. Eberts, of Chatham, with railroad iron, from Kingston, is near her, we are told, but in much better condition. [Globe]

The Buffalo "Rough Notes" says:- "there are six steamers contracted for, and some of them commenced, of the largest dimensions ever built upon the lakes, being some 300 tons larger than the Empire State! They are to run on Lake Erie and to be out in the spring. No pains or expense is to be spared in making them superior in point of speed to anything afloat. Captain War builds two, Captain Hazard two, and two are to be built for the Bay City Line."
