p.2 Vessels Aground - Some four or five schooners went aground in the vicinity of Mill Point during the blow on Saturday night. One of them, said to be the David Andrews, was high and dry. The tugs Summer and Sherwood have gone to their assistance. [Intelligencer]

The Tug Wren - A rumour was in circulation in town today that Messrs. Holcomb & Stewart's tug Wren had been totally wrecked yesterday and one life lost. Mr. Stewart informs us that the rumour is unfounded, as he had a telegram today stating that the Wren passed Valleyfield all right this morning with a tow of barges.

Lumber - The schooner E.G. Benedict is loading 200,000 feet of lumber at the railway track for Oswego, for Mr. R. Makins, who has contracted to supply one million feet, and which is being brought from the Rideau Canal. The lumber has all to be shipped this season.
