p.2 Steamboat Accidents - The freight steamer Ottawa which sank in the harbor last winter and was raised this spring, has met with another disaster on her voyage down the river. She was laden with flour for Montreal, and when near Brockville is reported to have sunk, but whether in deep or shallow water we are unable to say. The only particulars we could glean yesterday were very meagre. We could not learn whether the vessel had come in collision with anything, or whether the disaster may be attributed to the cause which made her sink in the harbor last December.

The mail steamer Champion was due at this port on Thursday evening last but had not arrived at a late hour last night. It is stated that the detention had occurred near Cornwall, the steamer having got aground at an old wharf.

p.3 Imports - 8.
