p.2 In Commission - The schooner Riverside, which has been in ordinary for some time, left yesterday for Chicago to load a cargo of bone dust for Glasgow, Scotland.

Accident - On the first trip of the Pierrepont to Channel Grove yesterday, a young lad named Rooney got four of his toes smashed by some of the machinery of the boat. It seems he was sitting near the walking beam and one of his feet slipped, getting in among the machinery, with the above result. The toes will have to be taken off.

The Steamer Armenia - We would suggest to the owners or agents of this steamer the advisability of making her announced trips with more regularity, as much disappointment has been caused lately by her failure to leave for Wellesley Island at the appointed time.

Sunk - We are informed that the schr. Laurel, of Kingston, Capt. Staley, bound to Oswego with iron ore, sprunk a leak about 15 miles from the latter port and sank. The crew was saved. Capt. Staley is a Portsmouth man.
