p.2 Accident to Mr. Green, the Submarine Diver - The Buffalo Courier says that the steamer Ploughboy brought to that port, on Friday, the intrepid diver, Green, whom she picked up, in a disabled condition, near the wreck of the Atlantic. Mr. Green had been down to the wreck, and found the chest containing the treasure, but his legs became paralyzed in consequence of the pressure of the water, in which condition he was brought there. He is wholly unable to use his lower extremities at present, but is expected to recover in a short time.

Fastest Time On Lake Ontario - The steamer Passport, Capt. Harbottle, and the steamer America, Capt. Masson, left Toronto together on Tuesday morning on their usual trip upwards. The Passport made the distance, from the Queen's wharf to the entrance of the Burlington Canal, in 1 hour and 53 minutes, and the America, in 1 hour and 56 minutes, the quickest time ever yet made on Lake Ontario. [Toronto Colonist]
