p.2 Important - Naval Establishment in Canadas to be made more extensive; a small vessel to be put into commission on each of the lakes, the whole under command of Capt. Barrie with the Broad Pennant of Commodore. [Quebec Official Gazette]

p.3 Trial of Rioters (cont'd)

The Weather, during the last two weeks, has been remarkably wet and boisterous. It appears that several accidents have occurred on the Lake - the schooner Telegraph, a new vessel, is said to be a complete wreck - On the 22d inst. the Steam Boats Queenston and Canada were both injured. The latter lost her masts and half of her chimney while crossing from Niagara to York. The breakwater and other piers at Burlington beach are much damaged - also a store-house belonging to Messrs. Kerby and Hatt.

The great uncertainty of the weather the present season of the year, makes it impossible for the Proprietors of the STEAM BOAT TORONTO to run her regular trips; she will therefore sail to the different ports when the weather admits of her going.

Albert Scalley (late Steward) having left the Steam Boat Toronto, all persons indebted to the Bar are hereby directed not to pay their bills to him, the Bar being furnished by Henry Baldwin.

Kingston, Oct. 24th, 1827.
