p.2 The steamer Ploughboy, about whose arrival at Collingwood some anxiety has been manifested, broke her cylinder head on Monday of last week, and drifted upon a sand bank near Little Current on Lake Huron. About 50 or 60 passengers are on board, half of whom belong to Toronto. The Nicolet, with provisions, has been sent from Collingwood to the relief of the stranded tourists. One of the boats which left the Ploughboy to give intelligence of the disaster and procure assistance, was upset, and __ Bouch, second mate, Parker, purser, and two deck hands, were drowned. The mate, who was the only one saved, was picked up, after 13 hours nearly exhausted.

p.3 Imports - 17; Clearances - 17.
