p.2 Sarnia, Nov. 8th - While the propeller North, of McLennan's Chicago Line, was wooding at Lambton (Sarnia) this morning, it was discovered she was on fire. The fire spread so rapidly that nothing could be done, and she was burned to the water's edge. She will be a total loss. The fire originated at the fire-hold.

Steamer Kingston Disabled - The Kingston struck in the Gallops yesterday (Thursday) on her way up. The leak is very trifling, and she has been kept up with her own pumps, after running into Edwardsburgh. She is expected to return to Montreal to go into the dry dock. No damage has been done to freight or baggage. Two pumps were sent today to enable her to return to Montreal. This accident will prevent her going up on Sunday.

More High Wind -The south wind which set in this morning increased towards noon sufficient to prevent heavily laden propellers from going up the lake. The propeller St. Lawrence, which left here this morning, had to return, owing to the heavy sea, and having found it impossible to put into South Bay.

Steamer Spartan - The steamer Spartan which should have reached here this morning will not arrive until ten o'clock, owing to a gale which prevented her from leaving Toronto at her usual hour.
