p.2 We regret to state that the steamboat Burlington took fire on Tuesday morning last, at the Queen's wharf, and before the flames could be subdued, the forepart of the boat burnt to the water's edge and sank. The damage done, we understand, is between 300 and 400 Pds. [Toronto Herald]

The new Royal Mail Steamer City of Toronto, Captain Dick, arrived at Kingston on Thursday last, from Toronto. Among her passengers on the occasion were the Hon. S.B. Harrison, and the Hon. J.H. Dunn. All accounts agree in describing the new steamer as a very fast sailer, admirably fitted up, and commanded by an excellent and obliging master. Messrs. Harrison and Dunn left Kingston on Friday for this city, and arrived here last evening.
