LOSS OF A LOWER LAKES STEAMER. - The well known steamer ARABIAN, built at Niagara by Mr. Heron, some five or six years since, and since which time forming one of the mail lines on the north shore of the lake, was lost on the lower St. Lawrence on Thursday last. She had recently been running between Quebec and River Du Loup. She struck a rock seventy miles below Quebec, and immediately sunk. The despatch to the Globe states that no lives were lost. The ARABIAN was a fine steamer, and was owned by Andrew Heron and W.M. Gorrie, of Toronto.
