p.2 The steamer City of Toronto yesterday broke one of her shafts on the lake and had to leave an excursion party at Port Dalhousie, for whom she was to return in the evening, to their own resources.

Wreck of the Ranger - Port Stanley, Aug. 9th - The side-wheel freight steamer Ranger, from Toledo to Montreal, corn laden, encountered a southerly gale on Wednesday, the 8th. She sprang a leak about 8 miles from Tyrconnel during the afternoon. Capt. Gaskin immediately applied his five pumps to work for several hours, when the engineer reported she was sinking. The steamer was then headed to the nearest land, and beached 7 miles west of Port Stanley. The vessel and cargo were insured. [Toronto Telegraph]
