p.2 Her Majesty - This steamer, built by Mr. Dennay of Dunbarton, on the Clyde, for Captain Thomas Dick, has now been out between eighty and ninety days, on her voyage to Quebec, and we grieve to say that there are no hopes of her safety. She was built for the Niagara and Toronto route, nearly 200 feet long and between 300 and 400 tons burthen. She was of iron, of the strongest construction, and of that model which is considered to combine the greatest speed with safety. Her builder went in her as far as Cork, and describes her as having behaved well during the passage. She had a crew of 20 on board, picked men, and Mr. Dennay will not believe that the greatest storm which ever blew caused her to founder; he thinks that she must have been destroyed by fire. She had coal for 13 days consumption on board, which would have brought her to Newfoundland, if not to Quebec. We are happy to find that the interprising owner was fully insured and suffers no loss, save of the services of the vessel, which are required on the route. [Globe]
