p.2 Capt. Handyside, of the propeller Her Majesty, feels grieved at the criticism of an old salt in attributing to unskilful handling the difficulties attending her entrance to the harbor on Saturday. He says that one of the blades of the screw was gone, and the other two injured, and that when he entered the harbor he supposed he could round to and fetch her up in the wind, but that finding the wind too strong upon the bow of the vessel to do so in her disabled state, and to prevent being driven ashore or against the tower, he backed the boat for the purpose of bringing her stern to wind, that being the approved method of handling propellers, whose bows are usually so much higher out of water than the stern, and are powerfully acted on by the wind. The anchor chain he says was slipped, and not broken, as was supposed, and the anchor has been recovered.

-The new full-rigged barque Huron which had been lying here for a day or two past, took her departure from here yesterday noon, by the tug, to Lake Erie. She goes direct to Kingston, where further arrangements, necessary for the promotion of her voyage to Liverpool, will be carried out. [Detroit Free Press]
