p.2 Departure of the Governor General - on str. Banshee, Capt. Howard, for Montreal; yesterday he visited Kingston Mills on str. Fire Fly.

The schooner Hamilton, Captain Fitzgerald, is the vessel reported as having refused to render assistance to the Northern Indiana at the time of the burning of that steamer. She has not been on Lake Erie at all. Will the papers that have given currency to this unjust charge do justice to her officers and crew by making the correction?

The ill-starred steamer Northern Indiana was valued by her owners at $200,000, and was not insured.

Imports - July 29th - Schooner Waterloo, Oswego, 11 tons coals, James Briggs; 121 tons coal, owners, Brockville.
