p.2 The Oswego Palladium has a decidedly clever account of the trial trip of an Oswego steam tug which recently visited this port. By some mismanagement the vessel was run ashore on Amherst Island and had to be got off by a steamer from Kingston. This disagreeable fact is smoothed over by the Palladium in an admirable way. Its account says:- "Amherst Island was also visited, and the party made quite a stay there, enjoying the hospitality of the natives, who seemed quite delighted with their visitors." Quite an elegant way of suppression, for which the captain of the steamboat ought to be doubly grateful.

Black Walnut - A large quantity of Black Walnut, chiefly from the American side, is now passing seaward through the agency of Mr. A.J. Millar of this city. The Rosenburg went down last week, heavily laden for Boston; the barque Jessie Drummond has transshipped a cargo here of 11,400 cubic feet, and returned to Port Stanley to load for Hamburg direct, her first cargo being shipped to Quebec to be sent home by some other sea-going vessel; the brig Robert Emmett takes 4,000 cubic feet to Montreal; and the capacious barque C.E. Pearson now in port, which loaded at Sandusky, having lightered 15,000 feet (board measure) proceeds downward and takes her own cargo and that of the Robert Emmett through direct to Boston.
