p.1 From the Thunder Bay Sentinel we learn that the steamer Manitoba, in attempting to enter the Kaministiquia River, where, in the interests of Oliver, Davidson & Co. the terminus of the Pacific Railway has been placed, got badly stuck. After about twelve hours delay, and with the aid of a tug boat, the steamer got afloat, and made for Prince Arthur's Landing.

Schooner Wrecked - A despatch from Goderich dated the 5th inst. says that as the schooner Mary Ann, owned by I.H. Radford, of Kingston, was bound from the Georgian Bay to Goderich, she was struck by a heavy squall from the northeast, off Point Clark, and as she was about entering the piers at Goderich the sea was running so hard that she would not answer to her helm. Both anchors were let go, but the anchor chains broke and she drifted on the beach. Her stern and keelson are gone, and her deck is raised six inches. She was towed in this morning, and is now discharging her cargo. The damage amounts to about $1,000. No insurance.
