p.2 Unsuccessful efforts were made yesterday afternoon to get off the scooner Acontias ashore on the shoal near the Shoal Tower. The vessel, deeply laden, had taken the outside course in making for the elevator wharves, and so got aground. The propeller Avon was for some time engaged in fruitless attempt to move the schooner off.

Collision -The barque Gem while coming into port yesterday and rounding to, struck the littlesteamer Bytown with her bowsprit and ripped up some of her upper works close to the wheelhouse. The steamer was rounding at the same time as the barque.
