p.2 Excursion To the Cape - letter to editor about trip on Sir Charles Napier.

Rather Cool - The British steamer Ottawa, lately sunk above Brockville, by collision with the Tibbetts, was hauled on the Marine railway one day last week, and after her cargo of flour had been removed, and the hole in her larboard bow partially repaired, she was let down again into the river, to replace the blocking under the ways, which, from her drawing some twenty feet of water when loaded, had to be removed. She was let down about 6 p.m., with the understanding that she was to be taken out again the next morning, when thorough repairs were to be put upon her. While the workmen were at supper, she was taken in tow by another steamer, and went up the river. So sudden a departure, when only partially repaired, betokened an unseemly haste, which clearly showed that her people did not stand upon the "order of their going." [Ogdensburgh Republican]
