p.2 A new steamer, the Zimmerman, arrived at Toronto from Niagara on Thursday last. The Zimmerman had a large party on board on the occasion of her first trip. She is intended to ply between Toronto and Niagara, in connection with the Erie and Ontario railway; has 206 feet length overall, 29 feet beam, 9 feet 10" hold and is propelled by a low pressure engine rated at 200 horse-power. The new steamer was built by Mr. Shickeluna, and is valued at 15,000 pounds.

We learn from the Chatham Planet that the three-masted schooner Globe, which was reported, a few days since, as being ashore at Port Bruce, with a cargo of railroad ties, has gone to pieces and is an entire wreck. We believe she was owned by the Hon. M. Cameron of Port Sarnia.
