p.2 Port Colborne, Dec. 3rd - The schooner New Dominion has filled with water. The cargo is a total loss.

The schooner B.F. Davy, of Kingston, broke her back last night and is now full of water. The vessel will be a total loss.

The Navigation - The steamer Empress which went down on Monday morning en route for Montreal, returned to this harbor on the same evening, having discharged her cargo at Prescott, not deeming it advisable to go farther at this late season of the year, and the weather having a frosty appearance. She has gone into winter quarters. The steamers and propellers said to have been lying by in South Bay, waiting for a change of weather, were not at that place, but at Presqu' Isle, on their way to this port. They were expected to reach here today or this evening.

Schooner B.F. Davy - The schooner B.F. Davy, which was reported as fast on the Reef at Port Colborne, and in a perilous position, broke her back on Monday night. It is expected that nothing can prevent her becoming a total loss. The Davy is owned by Swift and Company here, and is insured. She was freighted with corn from Chicago to Kingston, but owing to stress of weather the tug sent to her assistance had not been able to lighten her.
