p.2 Naturalization of American Vessels in France - an excellent opportunity for Kingston to build ships for ocean navigation. [Rochester Tribune quoting Washington Intelligencer] with further comment by News.

-The bark Superior, dismasted on Lake Erie, was not bound to Liverpool with a cargo of grain, as stated by the Buffalo Com. Adv., but for this port.

Schooner Belle Sunk - The schooner Belle of Oakville, which left this port on Saturday night last, with 1800 bushels of wheat for J.D. Cooper of Alcott, N.Y., ran aground between the Big and Little Sodus, west of Oswego, on Wednesday last. She was got off, but a leak was the consequence, and she shortly sunk in 20 feet of water. Her masts are visible above the water. Her cargo, which will be a total loss, is probably insured. She was advertised to leave this port tomorrow for Dunville, and the schooners Echo and Jenny Lind, at Maitland's wharf, will go in her stead. [Toronto Globe]
