p.2 The Heron - The gunboat Heron started on a cruise this morning.

Vessel Aground - The barque Robert Gaskin arrived last night from Chicago heavily laden with grain, (22,600 bushels). She grounded on the shoal off Ford & Henderson's wharf, and was obliged to discharge part of her cargo in order to lighten her. She got off this afternoon and is now discharging her cargo at Messrs. Chaffey's wharf. It would be well for the authorities to buoy this shoal, as heavily laden vessels are in danger of grounding there, especially during the prevalence of low water in the lake.

The Rideau Route To Ottawa - The steamer City of Ottawa arrived this afternoon. Captain Ryan reports that the repairs of the Rideau Canal at Hog's Back are nearly completed, and he anticipates being able to go through on his next trip.

Movement of Troops - on Grecian, Magnet, Corinthian, and Spartan.

p.3 ad - Kingston and Cape Vincent Ferry - str. Watertown, Coleman Hinckley, master, with new schedule to start on May 27th
