p.2 Gunboat Hercules - The gunboat Hercules has been lying at the St. Lawrence wharf all day. She intends staying here for a few days for repairs.

Thick Fog - The steamer Champion left here last evening during the prevalence of a very thick fog, but it did not interfere with her reaching Toronto today at her usual hour. The fog lasted a couple of hours, and was dispelled by a succession of heavy showers of rain.

The Grecian - On Monday night the Grecian arrived at the head of Nun's Island, where she was beached. Early this morning, at daylight, she again started on her journey, and arrived at the entrance to the Locks at 5:30. She was then brought into Tait's Dry Docks, and last evening the water was run off. She was raised by three steam pumps working forward, and two large pumps worked by steamers alongside, aft, to work which a portion of her upper deck abaft the paddle boxes had to be cut. The main injury is forward, near the paddles. The greatest part of her furniture was removed, and she has still a considerable quantity of potash on board. In a short time she will doubtless be running again. [Montreal Gazette]
