p.2 Damage To The Steamer Corinthian - The steamer Corinthian left at two o'clock this morning on her trip downwards, and when about four miles distant she came in collision with a propeller bound up and sustained sufficient damage to render it necessary for her to return. She arrived back about four o'clock, and upon examination it was discovered that the whole length of her stern was knocked astarboard, and her bow plates considerably bent, but she made little water. After temporary repairs, she again started on her trip shortly after ten o'clock. The name of the propeller is not certainly known, as that vessel did not touch here but kept directly on her course, and no name was seen by those on board the Corinthian at the time of the accident.

The Whitefish Season - Today terminates the season prescribed by law for catching white-fish. The number taken this season in Lake Ontario, as unanimously conceded by all engaged in the fishery, has fallen very far short of the preceding one, and it is generally admitted that the catch decreases annually. A noticeable feature of this season's take has been the unusual number of largr sized specimens taken.
