p.1 Drowned - A melancholy accident occurred on Friday the 12th, which resulted fatally to Mr. Wm. Brown, late of Newburgh. The facts are as follows: The young man was engaged on board the schooner Cincinnati, Capt. Thos. Bragg, bound from Mill Point to Oswego with lumber. In going through the Upper Gap he was knocked overboard by the foreboom. Every effort was made for his recovery by throwing lumber, letting the boat down, etc., but all were unavailing. He was heard to cry once, and that was all. The vessel was the property of H.B. Rathburn, Esq., of Mill Point. [Newburg North American]

p.2 The schooner Sirius, which lately left Sarnia, with a cargo of coal oil for Liverpool, reached Detroit on Saturday morning. She has on board 1725 barrels of oil, 13,000 staves, and 13,000 feet of oak lumber. It is the intention, we understand, of the owners of the Sirius, for her to return with a cargo of salt and other freight.
