p.2 The Corsican - There is no change to report in the position of the Corsican today so far. The steamer Magnet went with barges up to South Bay this morning to assist in unloading, but up to four o'clock they had not returned. The Hiram A. Calvin is still working at the steamer with the pumps. The freight already brought down is being shipped west per Grand Trunk Railway, arrangements having been made for that purpose. The steamer Algerian, on her way down from Hamilton, went as close as possible to the wreck, and reports the relief party as working hard at the Corsican. The Magnet is being loaded with the freight, and is expected down this evening.

The schooner Benedict left this afternoon for Oswego with 200,000 feet of lumber.
