p.2 We learn from the Brighton Sentinel that five vessels went ashore in the gale on Monday, 6th inst., to the east and in sight of Presque Isle Harbor. The Edith of Hamilton, laden with 4,000 bushels of wheat, sunk, her deck two feet under water. The Forest Queen, of Oakville, from Lake Erie, laden with staves, her rudder and stern post gone. The William and John, laden with plaster, aground. The Paragon of Toronto aground, with 2 feet of water in her hold. The Sarah Frances of St. Catherines, rudder and foremast gone. There is little doubt others met the same fate further East. The Sentinel urges that the opening of the Murray Canal would tend greatly to the safety of the lake mariner.
