p.2 The Lady Elgin Disaster -

p.3 The Barque Thomas F. Park of Amherstburg C.W., which left here on or about May 10th, with a cargo of oak lumber and staves for Liverpool, returned to this port yesterday morning, having on board as return freight 200 tons pig iron and a considerable quantity of coal, realizing out of the round trip a handsome renumeration. Captain Duncanson speaks of the Park as being a fine sea-going vessel and a fast sailer. The pig iron she discharges at this port, and with the coal she proceeds to Chicago, where she will take in a cargo of grain for ports on Lake Ontario. But for unexpected detention at Liverpool, and on her return at Quebec, she would have reached here a month sooner. [Detroit Advertiser 11th]
