THE GEORGIAN - The so called Rebel Steamer Georgian, arrived at the mouth of our River shortly afternoon to day on a mission of peace, We believe she will take freight from here to the Bruce Mines, which should have gone by the Algoma, after which she will possibly make a trip or two to Collingwood, thee being a quantity of freight lying there for our Merchants.

... The above is a mistake the whistle which was mistaken for the Georgian being no other than a new one got for calling the hands &c. Of the Messrs Corbett and Sons. The notorious Steamer is expected to-morrow.

SCHOONERS -Mr John Pearson of this Town, left his Schooner at Sarnia, and came home overland since which he has not heard anything of her, it is to be hoped she escaped the late storm, but it is feared otherwise. A Schooner left here last week for Spanish River, having a number of lumbermen on board, together with some horses, and stores for the winter. It is currently reported and credited that she is lost together with all on Board.

WRECK - We are sorry to learn that the Schooner Newash of this Port belonging to Mr. Wm. Miller was wrecked on the evening of the 9th inst. at Horse Shoe Island. A part of the cargo was saved but the greatest portion along with the vessel was totally lost. We understand Mr. Miller was not insured.
