p.2 Addition to Our Lake Marine - We neglected to notice, when she was in port, a very fine addition to our Lake Marine in the Waterwitch, a three-masted schooner or bark of about 400 tons. The Waterwitch was built by Mr. Cantin, of Montreal, for E. Berry, Esq., of Quebec, and for beauty of model and rig, and for strength, is not excelled on our waters. The Waterwitch left this port last week on her first western trip, for Buffalo.

Fatal Accident - A man named John Johnson, residing at Port Burwell, was lost overboard from the schooner N.G., at half past three o'clock last Saturday, on the passage of that vessel from Port Burwell to Buffalo.
