Port Colborne, Nov. 28th - The tug Heather ran ashore above Sugar Loaf Point in the snow storm last evening. She now lies on her beam ends, and is full of water. The tug Olivia Gordon, chartered by the Canal Superintendent, made a trip to Allanburg and back yesterday, breaking the ice. She reports it strong. She started on another trip this morning to break the ice for the Northern Transportation Company's propellers, bound up. The ice was so strong that the men belonging to the tug could walk on it alongside of her. No vessel movements since last report. The schrs. Nassau and Richmond are waiting the arrival of the up propellers now at Port Robinson before making an attempt to get down.

Port Colborne, Nov. 29th - Arrived this morning: The schooner L. Lamb, with coal from Cleveland, for Toronto. The propeller Antelope, from Buffalo, came up the canal. The props. City of Concord and Lowell leave for Cleveland when the weather permits. In the harbour, schr. Wanderer. The schrs. Wanderer, Nassau and Lamb are waiting for softer weather before going down the canal. The fine tug Hector, ashore above Sugar Loaf Point, will probably be a total loss. An attempt will be made to save her boiler and engines. She only came out this fall, and was considered the best tug in Canadian waters.
