We are informed that on Saturday night last the steamers William the Fourth and United Kingdom met in the Lake and ran foul of each other. It is said that a man was killed on board the former, and the bowsprit and cutwater of the latter was carried away. --- St. Catharines Journal.

We are informed by George Jacob, jun. Esq., that the Queen Adelaide, Steam Boat, built at Chippewa, may be expected at Sandwich in the early part of the ensuing week. Trial has been made of her Engine, which gives entire satisfaction. She only waited the finishing of her promenade deck.

The TECUMSEH. — Yesterday afternoon trial was made of this new Schooner. She made several stretches through our bay, and excited the admiration of numerous spectators and passengers, by her speed and facility of working. In our last number we ought to have stated that Mr. John Allen of Sandwich is joint proprietor with Mr. Baby.

She sails on Monday for Gosfield and York. We again wish success to her enterprising owners.

The St, Catharines Journal says: -- A new schooner, 110 tons burthen was launched at this place on the 29th. Ult. She was built by Captain Armington, is named the William Hamilton Merritt, and is intended for Canal and Lake navigation.

The Steam-Boat "ARGO,"

Having been fitted up and put in complete repair, will hereafter be employed as a ferry boat between the City of Detroit and the Beacon Ferry House, Sandwich. The proprietor has been at considerabe pains and expense in rendering the Argo an expeditious and commodious medium of communication between the above mentioned places; and the public may rely on being accommodated without delay or inconvenience in the conveyance of Carriages and Waggons of all kinds, Cattle, Horses, &c. &c.
