p.2 The Bay Queen Wrecked - Colborne, Nov. 17th - Schooner Bay Queen, of Hamilton, went ashore one mile west of here yesterday evening, loaded with wheat. The crew were saved after great exertions. The vessel is a total wreck.

Imports - 17-19.

The Steamers - The steamers are running again pretty regularly on their downward trips, but some difficulty in going upward during the past two days, owing to the high sea which is still rolling on the lake. The Grecian passed upwards on Saturday evening, and reached Toronto on Sunday afternoon. The Passport, which left here on Saturday morning for Toronto, got back on her way to Montreal at eleven this morning. The Osprey, which came in collision with and sunk the Whitby in Lake St. Francis on Thursday last, passed here this morning on her way to Toronto. The Kingston, which arrived here and left for Toronto on Saturday afternoon, returned on Sunday night, on account of the heavy sea, she being very heavily laden; she left again at eight this morning, and returned at ten, the heavy sea being still on.
