p.2 The Ocean Wave - Successful attempts have been made this last Spring to find the location of this steamer which was burned to the water's edge and sank off Long Point in the Spring of 1853. She lies in shallow water between three and four miles from the shore; the depth of the water has not yet been made public though we believe it has been ascertained. It is said to contain a large amount of money; and it is also supposed that bodies of the unfortunate passengers who did not leave the wreck are still remaining. Some means will now be found to raise her from the water; principally on account of her engine works which were new and valuable, and the money. [Picton Gazette]

p.3 Imports - 16; Exports - 15,16.
