p.2 Canadian Captain Arrested At Oswego - The Captain of the Canadian schooner Admiral was arrested at Oswego, on Monday last, on the charge of aiding in the escape of two volunteers after they had received thirty dollars each of the city bounty. It is said that the two men, after enlisting and receiving the money, took passage on the Admiral, and were landed at Port Hope. The Captain was charged with being accessory to their escape. The case is still under examination. If guilty the Captain should be punished, although the master of the Yankee steamer City of Madison, charged with committing a similar offence in Toronto, managed to procure his release.

New Steamer - The steamer in course of building by Chaffey Brothers, on Buell's Point, is fast nearing completion, and will be ready for launching in October. It is 155 feet in length, 26 feet beam, and 400 tons, carpenters' measurement. This is the extreme proportion for vessels passing through the Welland Canal locks. When we state that the vessel is being built under the careful inspection of B. Chaffey, Esq., its qualities for encountering storm and tempest may be anticipated. After being launched, the steamer will be taken to Kingston to be fitted up, where her machinery lies waiting her arrival. When the above mentioned vessel leaves the stocks, the enterprising proprietors intend laying down several barges during the winter. This will yield labor for numbers of workmen who might otherwise be idle. Brockville owes something to Chaffey Brothers for having selected it as the site of their operations. [Brockville Recorder]
