p.2 The Loss of the Watertown - It is now supposed that more than one life was lost at the time the Watertown was burned. A woman and two children were aboard at Cape Vincent the evening before the accident, intending to come to Kingston, and it is supposed that they must have remained on board, as the bones of three skeletons have been found on the wreck, one large and two smaller ones, which may possibly be those of the woman and her children. The woman was a stranger, and no clue to her identity has yet been found. We have not heard of any inquest having been held on any of these remains.

The Wreck of the Watertown - The wreck of the steamer Watertown was towed to Dawson's Ferry, Wolfe Island, this morning by the steamer Pierrepont. The intention is to take out the engines, etc., at Garden Island, and to convey them to the city to be afterwards used as circumstances may direct.

Steamers Delayed - The American steamer Cataract, which should have gone to Oswego on Saturday night, did not leave here until this morning, owing to the storm; and the steamer Magnet, due here last evening from Montreal, did not leave for Toronto until this morning between nine and ten.

The Ferry Boat - A slight accident having occurred to the Ferry Steamer Gazelle, the passengers to and from Wolfe and Garden Islands were conveyed over by scow.

Imports - 9-11; Exports - 9-11.

Vessels To And From Canadian Ports Passing Through The Welland Canal - 9th.
