p.3 The Schooner Folger - Captain Donnelly, with the tug Chieftain, got the schr. Folger off the shoal in Toronto harbour in about two hours, after the tugs Edsall and Robb had worked at her for about two days without moving her. There was no damage done to the schooner's bottom. She was immediately loaded with corn for Ogdensburg.

To Be Fitted Out - The Picton Gazette says: "The str. Armenia towed the Empress of India down to Garden Island on Tuesday last. At this place she will remain during the winter for the purpose of having a new shaft put in. We believe it is also in contemplation to provide her with a more powerful engine, and otherwise fit her up in a first-class condition throughout."
