Gunboats - The Globe says the work of housing in the gunboat laid up in Toronto harbor will be completed this week. The disposition of the boats for the winter will be as follows: The Heron at Toronto; the Cherub at Goderich, protecting the Prince Alfred, also laid up there; the Britomart at Dunnville, protecting the Rescue in the same place; and the Hercules and Royal at Kingston Navy yard. The crews belonging to the Prince Alfred and Rescue were expected to be ordered to their ship - the Aurora - at Quebec. The Provincial gunboats will be laid up for the winter in charge of the Government agent, Mr. Wyatt; and the crews of the English gunboats will protect their own, as well as the other boats laid up in the same harbor in case of necessity.

Boats Laying Up - Several propellers have passed downwards, to lay up along the line of the Lachine and Beauharnois canals; the St. Helen intended on her last trip up the Bay of Quinte to lay up at Picton; and the Magnet, now on her way to Toronto and Hamilton, will lay up here on her return, when all the boats of the Lake and River Navigation Company's line will have gone into winter quarters.

Propeller America Disabled - One of the flanges of the propeller of the America broke at Lachine on her way upwards, another at Beauharnois, and a third at Cornwall. The breaking of this last flange made it necessary to tow the vessel up, the tug Metamora, engaged for that purpose, bringing her into this harbor this morning. The intention is to have the Metamora tow the propeller to Toronto.
