p.2 Arrival of a Vessel in Halves - On Sunday last, at about 3 o'clock in the afternoon, the forepart of the S.S. Chicora arrived in this port in tow of the steamer Scotchman and another boat that came to the assistance of the latter at the foot of the St. Mary's current. At about 5 o'clock, the stern portion of the same vessel arrived in tow of the Napolean. The Chicora, we understand, was built for a blockade-runner, but was never used as such. She has been brought from Scotland, and wintered at Sorel, whence she was taken to Quebec, and there cut in two, so as to be able to pass the locks. The respective portions now go to Buffalo, to be there put together again, and fitted up with guards, etc., as a regular steamboat for the lakes. [Montreal Witness]

p.3 Arrivals - 28; Departures - 28.
