p.2 Schooner Raleigh - The tug John A. Macdonald began at an early hour this morning to pump out the schooner Raleigh, which still lay settled down by the stern, on the shoal opposite the Market Battery. By ten o'clock the schooner began to rise, and was shortly afterwards got off the shoal, and into an upright position, when the tug William came up, and the Raleigh was towed into the slip at the wharf of Messrs. Glassford and Jones. She has three hundred tons of stone on board, which will be there taken out, when the schooner will be put on the Marine Railway for repairs.

The Steamers - The steamer Ottawa lay here all day yesterday, and left for Toronto in company with the propeller St. Lawrence about midnight. They managed to get about twenty miles up the lake, a strong wind blowing from the southeast, when they were compelled to return, after having in vain endeavored to put in to South Bay. They got back to their dock about five this morning, intending to leave again during the day. The Ontario on her way up, and the Bay State down, had not arrived early in the afternoon, the former being expected to reach here about three o'clock. The Spartan from Toronto was also delayed by the storm, and would not arrive until this evening. The Passport which went up last evening, however, seems to have weathered the storm.
