Port Colborne, Dec. 1st - The propellers Lowell and City of Concord left on Saturday night for Cleveland.

Left yesterday - Schr. Wanderer for Port Ryerse. No arrivals.

The schooners Richmond, Nassau and Lamb, bound through the canal, have laid up, there being now no prospects of getting through.

p.2 A Clever Theft - Some weeks ago, Capt. Jas. Acton, of the sloop Greyhound, on going to bed at night, hung up his coat, in the pocket of which was an envelope containing a draft for $40, and $40 in Greenbacks. In the morning the envelope and contents were missing, and no clue could be obtained as to how or by whom the abstraction was accomplished. Last Tuesday, however, the missing money was found; the vessel had been laid up for the season, and in clearing out the hold, a rat's nest was discovered, with ten little rats quietly reposing in a bed of Greenbacks. The draft, and most of the bills, were gnawed and torn past hope of redemption, but the discovery was so far satisfactory, that it is now known where the money went to. [Gananoque Reporter]
