p.3 The Spartan - The steamer Spartan, which ran on a shoal at Lachine on Friday last, remained fast until yesterday, when her cargo having been removed by means of barges she was got off, and was placed n Taite's dry dock for repairs. The damage done her is trifling. The Passport, lying for a few days past at Lachine, will be put on the route in the meantime in place of the Spartan. [Witness]

The Hamilton Spectator learns that Capt. Harbottle, of the Chicora, has been offered a position, involving onerous duties, on board one of the New York steamers during the winter months. He may accept it, but his acceptance will not interfere with his three years' engagement with the proprietors of the Chicora.
