p.2 Steamer Beaver - We understand that the canal steamer Beaver is aground or sunk near Newboro.

Drowned - three men left Garden Island for city in a skiff; men missing but skiff found adrift.

Launch - Capt. Gaskin's new ship will be launched from the Marine Railway shipyard on Thursday afternoon. This ship is about 900 tons measurement. Our country friends should make it a point to come into town on Thursday to see the launch, which will be one of the greatest "sights" Kingston may boast of for some time to come.

Our Fisheries - Some nine miles of Gill-net belonging to American fishermen have been seized and are to be sold by Mr. Verner, Custom-house Officer at Long Point. Our American friends were a little too fast in this case. The Reciprocity treaty has not yet been proclaimed. As soon as it is, however, they will be fully entitled to come in and carry away the produce of our splendid white fishery, and they will not be likely to loose the chance. So much for the treaty of which Lord Elgin and the Emperor are so proud. [Picton Gazette]
