p.3 Commodore Barrie returned from the upper lakes.

On Thursday morning last, the British merchant Sloop Beaver was wrecked about 6 miles from Pidgeon Island, having on board 94 sheep, and four persons. The sheep were all lost excepting four, which were picked up by the steamer Alciope, as also the four persons, viz. Alexander Hudson, Thomas Pattinson, John Bone, and George Hatcher, who return their sincere thanks to the Master and the crew of the Alciope, for their exertions in saving them. [Communicated]
