p.2 The Steamer Kingston - An accident happened to the steamer Kingston at Toronto on Saturday morning. The schooner Oddfellow came in collision with the steamer near the Yonge Street wharf. Part of the upper cabin deck of the Kingston was completely destroyed, and a quantity of rigging and the rail guard broken. Very little damage was done to the schooner.

The Kingston, after landing at Port Hope, had a narrow escape from being burned. A spark alighted in the room where the steamer's linen is stored, did considerable damage, and caused great consternation among the passengers. A passenger whose name is supposed to be J.M. Rattle, jumped overboard, and was drowned. The Kingston passed down this morning on her regular trip, very little the worse for the accident.

p.3 Imports - 3,4.
