p.2 Schooner Adrift - A strong southward gale sprung up during last night, which sorely tried the hawsers of the vessels at the docks. The schooner B.C. Davy broke from her moorings and went ashore at Point Frederick; she was towed off this afternoon, without having sustained any damage.The St. Lawrence also broke away, but was at once secured.

Propeller Sprung A Leak - The propeller St. Lawrence was undergoing repairs at the Marine Railway and was launched on Friday evening. It was supposed that the recent intense frost had shrunk some of her timbers, as immediately on touching the water she sprung a leak, and continued to make water until nine o'clock this morning, when the leakage stopped. Gangs of men have been engaged at the pumps night and day until this morning. She now lies all right at the wharf north of the Railway, which is to be her winter quarters.
