p.2 The Schooner B. Everleigh - The British Whig of this morning, (printed on Saturday night) says:- "The schooner B. Everleigh left Toledo for Oswego, with a cargo of 12,000 bushels of wheat, on the 18th of October, since which date nothing has been heard of her, and there seems to be no doubt that she has gone down with all on board. The Everleigh was owned by B. Everleigh of Sodus, was built at Sackett's Harbour in 1866, rated A-2, and valued at $10,000. " The above report of her loss is entirely incorrect, the vessel in question having arrived at Henderson's wharf, Kingston, on Sunday, safe and sound.


An invitation is here given to all parties interested in SHIP PUMPS (tomorow, the 15th inst.), to test the efficiency of pumps in pumping out grain, etc, out of the Schooner William John, sunk at the Kingston Foundry Wharf, laden with wheat.

Hopes are now entertained of a fair and an impartial trial between the different Ship Pumps now in the market, or those declining to avail themselves of this favourable opportunity of doing so, may forever hold their peace.
