p.2 Steamer Sunk - The Freight Steamer Huron was sunk unfortunately in the St. Lawrence near Weaver's Point. She lies in eleven feet forward and five feet aft. She can readily be raised and be at work again.

p.2 Change of Route - On dit, that in consequence of the sinking of the Steamer British Empire, which still remains submerged, the St. Lawrence and Lake Ontario Steamboat Company have chartered the fine Steamer Bay of Quinte, to do duty on the route of the British Empire. Mr. Gildersleeve, the chief owner of the Bay of Quinte, having the steamer City of the Bay, lying idle on his hands, is thus enabled to give her good employment on the Bay of Quinte route, in the place of the steamer sent below.

The Collingwood Route - We are gratified to learn that the elegant steamers Europa and Champion, of the Collingwood Route, are now doing a flourishing business. The attractions of the route are such that travellers can hardly resist it, and the manner in which the whole business of the route is transacted does not fail to be appreciated by the travelling public. We learn that since the 12th of June the Collingwood Route has carried the United States Mail for the North and West. It now conveys the mail from both directions. The Champion arrived at this port this morning with over 100 cabin passengers, who had left Chicago in the Buckeye State. [Oswego Journal]
