p.2 The durham boat Augusta, with a cargo of wheat was lost near Gananoque the end of last week, and a woman, a passenger, unfortunately drowned. The wheat was the property of Thomas M'Kay, Esq., of Bytown, who was having it conveyed to this market, owing to the impossibility of carrying it to his milling establishment at Bytown, while the Rideau Canal navigation continues closed. The wheat, we are happy for the sake of the proprietor to learn, was fully insured with the Inland Insurance Company. The boat belonged to Messrs. M'Pherson, Henderson & Co.
