p.2 The steamer Empress has been raised, and is expected up today. She will go forward to Toronto and Hamilton.

Wreck of the Steamer Kaloolah - This well known steamboat, owned by Messrs. Vanevery and Rumball, of Goderich, went ashore at Saugeen a few days ago. Hopes were entertained at first that she could be got off, and Mr. McGee, the agent of the Home Assurance Company, went from Detroit with the tug J.P. Ward to her assistance; but on Friday last, the 22nd inst., a storm arose, and at twelve o'clock of the same night she broke in two, and subsequently went to pieces, nothing being saved of any value or consequence. The Kaloolah was built at Buffalo by Bidwell & Banta, and came out in 1852. Her engine was one formerly in use on board the Lexington, which steamer came out in '36, and prior to that date it was used in the Uncle Sam for some four years or thereabouts. She was insured for $10,000, which will fully cover her loss. The following companies held risks on her:- Home Insurance Company, $3,000; Phoenix $3,000; and British North American $4,000.
