p.2 Launch - The fine newly built steam barge R. Anglin will be launched tomorrow morning from Anglin's wharf.
Shipping News - The lake yesterday was studded with sails, and presented a very animated scene. The following vessels arrived yesterday at Garden Island from Toronto and Hamilton, all laden with staves with one exception, which had a cargo of timber:- John Ray, Dauntless, Homeward Bound, Mayflower, Ariadne, O.S. Storrs, Hercules, Peerless, Rapid, China, Theresa and Victor. The sch. Richardson put back yesterday leaky. The schooner Gazelle returned from Oswego yesterday with plaster; she was the first vessel out and the first to return. The steamer Norseman arrived yesterday with the steamer Rochester in tow from Port Hope. The Pearl, schooner, arrived yesterday with scrap iron from Gananoque. The Defiance sailed yesterday with stone for Chicago. This is the vessel which went ashore on the reef at Snake Island last fall, whence she was with difficulty rescued. She has been thoroughly repaired. The schooner D.M. Foster arrived at the M.T. company's wharf today from Oswego, and is taking in scrap iron for Toronto.
Collision - A collision took place yesterday about the middle of the lake, off Nicholson Island, between the schooner A.W. Lucky, of Oswego, and the schooner Centurion, of Port Hope, the former being bound up and the latter down the lake. The Centurion was badly damaged, and put into South Bay to await a tug to tow her into Oswego. The damage of the Lucky is unknown, as she continued her course to the Welland Canal. The particulars of the occurrence have not been ascertained.
Welland Canal - Port Colborne, April 24th - The propellers Milwaukee, Oswegatchie and America left at noon. They are making slow progress through the ice. One propeller and two vessels are in sight, coming in slowly. The ice appears worse than yesterday. The wind is driving it on this shore and down the lake. No vessels have left or can leave until a change of wind to the north. They will today try to tow the barque Cecilia through the moving ice, and if successful will take others.
