p.2 The Steamers - We learn that Mr. W.E. Swales, for a time captain of the Bay of Quinte, will run the steamer Rochester this season. The Norseman commences her regular trips on Monday.

Wrecking Intelligence - Mr. John Donnelly, Calvin & Breck's wrecker, has just returned from Seneca Falls, where he inspected a new 12 inch rotary steam pump made to order for the above firm. We understand this is a splendid pump, and has been sent to Toronto where it will be kept in readiness for use on the upper end of Lake Ontario and possibly on the upper lakes, if occasion require it. This branch of Messrs. Calvin and Breck's business is becoming quite extensive. They have three iron steam pumps, and two very large wooden ones, which are worked by steam, diving dresses, steam tugs, and all description of wrecking apparatus. Many thousands of dollars are invested in this stock, all of which is under the control and management of Mr. Donnelly, who is acknowledged to have no superior in the business. Last fall it was he who raised the steamships France and Vicksburg, which were saved respectively below Montreal and Quebec.
