p.2 The Passport - The weather not having proved favorable for setting the pump to work, the Passport remains in her old position, the picture of an almost total wreck. Anticipating a change in the weather, the hands were kept on board all Wednesday night and held in readiness to begin operations in the event of the wind subsiding, but up to last evening the wind continued too strong and the lake too rough to admit of anything being done. Yesterday it was discovered that some obstruction existed at the lower end of the pump which would prevent it from working effectually, and in the afternoon preparations were in progress to raise it for the purpose of removing the difficulty. The boisterous weather which has prevailed since the boat was run ashore has greatly increased the damage to the woodwork, and should the weather continue as rough as it has been for some days, the saloon and other parts of the lower deck will be completely destroyed.

The Steamer Bowmanville - The latest we have heard of the lake steamer Bowmanville is that she is still in the hands of the Surveyor of the Port of New York, on suspicion of being a blockade runner. The officer is confident that the facts in his possession are sufficient to convict her. She is at present on the dry docks undergoing necessary repairs to the injuries of her cruise from Quebec.

p.3 Imports - 5.
