p.1 Off For Prescott - gunboat Rescue carrying Deputy Minister of Militia and party.

Yacht Oriole - The fine schooner yacht owned by Messrs. Campbell, Hunter and Mulock, of Toronto, arrived here from that place last night, and is now lying opposite Carruthers' wharf. This vessel is on its first cruise, having been built this spring by Mr. Shickluna of St. Catharines. She measures 90 tons, and is fitted up with great taste. A number of Toronto gentlemen are on board, and the sailing master is Capt. Bilton of our city. The party intended going down the river as far as Ogdensburg, and will probably return to Toronto in a couple of weeks, visiting some American towns on the return trip. We congratulate the owners on the result of their undertaking in having obtained the finest yacht afloat in Canadian waters.
