p.2 The Schooner Lily of Oakville, Capt. Williams, left Cape Vincent on Sunday at 2 o'clock P.M. with a full cargo of merchandize consigned to W.M. Gorrie, and arrived at Toronto at four o'clock on Monday afternoon, making the run in 14 hours.

Singular Death - Captain Starkey, of the schooner Champion met with his death on Monday, from the effects of a hawser having hurt him, as he came up the river. As the Champion was beng tugged up, the hawser attached to the steam tug got round his body - and he died in Kingston from the effects of the squeeze. All the vessels in Kingston Harbor had their colors half mast high yesterday. [Whig]

The statement in yesterday's News that the Western Miller, propeller, had been disabled near Toronto, is, we learn, incorrect. The Brantford was the vessel towed into Toronto.

Will leave the United States Wharf, Kingston, every day (Sundays excepted) at 9 A.M., for Cape Vincent, New York, and Boston, via Watertown and Rome Railroad.

Kingston, Nov. 30th, 1853.
