p.2 Schooner Lost - The schooner Britannia, from Picton to Kingston, with a load of flour, ashes, etc., was so much injured by ice on her passage down, that on encountering a heavy sea in the upper and lower gaps, she sprung a leak which was more than a match for the pumps, and when Morton's was reached, she went down in about 11 feet water.
The Weather - continues fine - "One vessel is in harbor shipping iron for the head of the lake, and three or four steamers are yet moving about."
