p.2 Wreck On Lake Erie - The Detroit Tribune of Saturday says:- The steamer Mayflower, on her down trip on Tuesday afternoon, when off Long Point, passed a large black brig, with painted ports, long cabin on deck, loaded with timber, and apparently bound for the Welland Canal - main-mast and fore-top gallant yard carried away.

Drowned - The mate of the William Black, of Hamilton, was drowned at Port Dalhousie, on Sunday last, between 7 and 8 o'clock. At the time of accident, deceased was sitting on the bulwarks, lost his balance. Those on board immediately ran to his assistance, but he never rose after going down, and of course they could not save him. The body had not been recovered yesterday afternoon. [St. Catherines Post 22nd]
