p.2 A Wreck Somewhere - Several vestiges of a wrecked vessel, including barrels of flour, bedding, etc. were driven, within a few days past, on the heads of Simcoe and Wolfe Island. As a vessel, supposed to have been a steamer, was seen aground on Gull Island, last week, and has since disappeared, it is conjectured that these may be the remains of the missing vessel.

p.3 wife of Capt. G.W. Creighton has daughter.
