p.2 American Cruiser, Green Isle - Among the late distinguished arrivals in the harbour is that of the American gunboat, Green Isle, at present engaged on an extensive surveying expedition. She has already made a cruise through lakes Ontario, Erie, Huron, Superior, and Michigan, noting and stopping at all the principal points along the route, and is now on her way down the St. Lawrence, anchoring here yesterday before proceeding thither. She is last from Toronto. The Green Isle is a very pretty war vessel, officered by the following staff:- Colonel Morden (accompanied by his wife), Captain Boutillier, Lieutenant Boutillier, Captain F. Palfrey, Lieutenant-Colonel O'Connell (and wife), Lieutenant Flora, Captain Livermore (and wife), and General Sabrie (and wife). The above party, while the boat remains here, have taken up temporary quarters at the Harwood House. The officers, who are extremely polite, invited a number of their friends and newly made acquaintances to accept of their hospitality on board the Green Isle, which started on a trip up the lake for a short distance today about noon, returning later in the afternoon, the visitors apparently much pleased with the manner in which they had been entertained.

Port Burwell, Aug. 30th - The schooner George M. Able (Abie ?), of Cleveland, came ashore here today and is going to pieces fast.
