p.2 Steamer Banshee - The damage sustained by this fine boat a few weeks since having been repaired, she will leave Kingston for Montreal tomorrow (Sunday) morning, at five o'clock.

Accident To the Steamer Passport - We regret to learn that the Passport struck upon a rock in the Coteau rapids on Wednesday afternoon, and received such damage that she commenced to fill with water. Her head was turned to land, and about two miles below the rapids she took the ground about forty feet from shore. The passengers were all safely got off with their baggage, and were taken to Montreal by the Grand Trunk Railway, where they arrived by eleven o'clock the same night.

Welland Canal - On Thursday morning the propeller Vermont broke through Lock No. 23, carrying away the four gates. The damage done cannot be repaired sooner than from two to three days.
