p.2 Sailboat Accident At Toronto - 2 drowned, Mr. Baker, sailmaker, saved.

Steamer Queen of the West Destroyed By Fire - Hamilton, July 9th - The steamer Queen of the West caught fire at Macpherson & Crane's wharf about half-past six o'clock this evening, and burned to the water's edge. She floated from where she first caught fire to Browne's wharf. A parcel of wood on the wharf caught fire, but the steamer Rochester from Lewiston got there in time to tow the Queen away, when the firemen succeeded in saving Browne's property, which would otherwise have been destroyed.
