It will be seen that, during the gale on Friday night, the Steamboat Dalhousie, Capt. M'Donell, narrowly escaped being wrecked between Prescott and Brockville. - We learn that one of the Durham boats referred to by the passengers is safe - the other, it is feared, will not be recovered, as there were no sailors on board to guide her through the storm. The Steam-boat Martha Ogden was driven on shore, near Morristown, the same evening.
The York papers inform us that the Steam boat Canada, which plys regularly between York and Niagara, broke the main shaft of her engine on Tuesday last. The Advocate says that "a new shaft will be cast in York, and the Canada will get under weigh again in a day or two."
The Steam-Boat Toronto, whose Engine frame was injured about two weeks ago, will be ready to resume her trips in the course of a few days. The necessity of sending to Montreal for Castings has occasioned great inconvenience to the public and a serious loss to the proprietors.
