p.2 Launch - A splendid steamer was launched in this town on Tuesday last, amid a large concourse of persons belonging to the Messrs. W. & W. Eberts (sic). She is named the Canadian Lily, and is intended to take the place of the Ploughboy between this port and Detroit. Her model is decidedly the handsomest we have seen on the western waters; and we have no doubt she will fully sustain the high hopes entertained by all who have seen her of her matchless sailing qualities. [Chatham Planet]

Marine - It is reported that the schooner Toledo, Capt. Rogers, which cleared from this port on the 14th, for Erie, with a cargo of salt, was dismasted in a squall near the mouth of the Welland Canal, on this lake, on Sunday morning last. At the time of the disaster, the schooner Kosciusko was in company, made fast to the Toledo, and after towing her for some time, was compelled by heavy weather to abandon her, after taking off her crew. Subsequently the Toledo was found afloat, and towed into the Niagara by the propeller Michigan. [Oswego Journal]
