p.2 The Algerian - The engines, boilers, and all the machinery of this vessel are quite new, having been furnished by Mr. Gilbert, of Montreal, and costing $18,000.

The Steamer Corinthian - The Corinthian was safely got off on Friday afternoon from the place where she had grounded on the Split Rock, and arrived in Montreal about midnight, making no water, and apparently uninjured. She was got off by Mr. Donnelly. She passed up last evening.

Notice is given that a lighthouse has been erected by the Government of Canada on Brown's or Knapp's Point, Wolfe Island, River St. Lawrence, near Kingston, Ont., and a fixed white light will be shown it on the 15th July next.

p.3 Marine Intelligence

Dismasted - The schooner Eliza Fisher, Capt. Brotherton, which left Oswego on Tuesday, had both spars carried away about 10 o'clock Wednesday night, some miles off Cobourg. She was picked up by the schooner Hannah Butler, and towed to Presque Isle.

The schooner Caroline Marsh, Capt. Colwell, bound from Oswego to Port Hope, was caught out in the late squall, and came near capsizing. Her booms dragged in the water, and although she came through the gale in safety, she had a narrow escape.

A Rare Occurence - To have vessels deliver less grain than their bills of lading call for is becoming quite frequent of late, but to have one overrun is a rare thing. The schooner Atwater, however, overrun 301 bushels at Oswego on her last trip, and a schooner had nearly a hundred bushels to spare at this port the other day. But elevator men seldom make a mistake that side of the account. [Buffalo Com. Adv.]

The storm on Wednesday was about the hardest that ever visited Gananoque, although it fortunately did no damage of any consequence. The schooner Mary Foster, which was anchored in the bay, dragged her anchor nearly half a mile, and had the squall continued a few minutes longer would have gone ashore on an island.
