p.2 Vessels Laying Up - Two schooners, the Helen and the Lily, have come into port for the last time this season, and are being dismantled preparatory to their being laid up for the winter. The present squally season will drive many a craft into port, and lessen the chances of shipwreck on the lakes. The schooner Waterwitch and other vessels are also lying up.

The Schooner Mountaineer - The schooner Mountaineer, boud from Toledo to Ogdensburgh with a cargo of corn, and which got aground at Cedar Island on Monday morning, was towed off and over to the harbor by the steamer Gazelle last night (Monday), after being partially lightened into one of Henderson & Co's barges. She now rides at anchor off the Marine Railway, and seems to have sustained very little damage, notwithstanding her perilous position among the rocks where she went ashore. Her rudder was carried away, and she will have to go on the railway as soon as the steamer Pierrepont, now undergoing repairs there, is launched, in order to be furnished with a new one. She will then leave for Ogdensburgh with her cargo.

The Gale - The gale which has prevailed more or less for several days is on again today almost as violent as ever. The steamer Bay of Quinte reports very heavy weather in coming through the gap. A schooner is reported aground on the bar between the Brothers and Amherst Island. At Toronto the gale has been very severe, and schooners have been prevented entering that harbor for hours. The schooner Admiral about leaving there with a cargo of lumber, had to be abandoned, and in the efforts of the crew to land, a sailor named Kelly was drowned. The schooner Orion went aground there on the bar; and vessels were lying at and off Cobourg owing to the violence of the storm. The schooner Maple Leaf went ashore in South Bay on Monday night; the propeller Avon foundered and sunk twenty miles off Dunkirk on Monday...

p.3 St. Catherines - 4 gates of lock 22 carried away by schooner Merrimac. The vessel is jammed in the lock and has to be cut out.
