p.2 Collision - The freight steamer Reindeer and the schooner Admiral, came in collision, about 2 o'clock, Saturday morning, near "the Ducks;" both vessels sustaining some injury. One man is missing, supposed to have leaped or to have been knocked overboard.

The bark Reindeer, from Lake Huron for London, is at anchor in this harbour at the time we write (Saturday). In the gale of Friday the Reindeer dragged her anchor for some distance, and for some time it was supposed she would go ashore at Point Frederick. But she was brought up all right some distance from the Point, and has since moved more into the harbour. The Reindeer is a fine vessel, full rigged as a bark, and is about 450 tons burthen. The absence of a figure-head renders her less pleasing to the eye of the non-professional looker-on, but to that of a sailor she appears a very good-looking craft.

The new steamer Bowmanville, Capt. Perry, now in course of completion at Kingston, has been chartered to proceed on the 1st of Sept. from Quebec to Toronto, with a portion of the Parliamentary library, books of the public department, and with the effects of the officers of the different departments. The Bowmanville was built at Kingston and is a beautiful and commodious craft. After fulfilling her charter she will be placed on the line between Montreal, Ogdensburgh, Kingston and Toronto.

To Be Sold by Auction - The Brig Mohawk - on 1st September, at McIntosh's wharf, adjoining the Marine Railway, well found in sails, rigging, anchors, cabins, cabin furniture, etc., complete. 18th August.
