St. Lawrence Canals - In consequence of damages caused to the mitre sills of several of the Locks of the St. Lawrence Canals, by the parties in charge of Vessels endeavoring to lock them through when loaded to a greater depth than 9 feet, the Superintendents and Lock Masters have received orders not to permit any vessel so loaded to be entered into any lock.

-Brig John Young Capsized - The brig John Young, loaded with staves, owned by the Messrs. Rae of this city, was capsized in a squal on Lake Erie on Monday afternoon. Her crew were picked up by a propeller on the Lake at the time of the accident. On Tuesday morning the vessels Orkney Lass and John Rae, which were on their way down the Lake, fell in with the capsized vessel, which was still afloat. The crew immediately went to work, righted her; pumped her out, and putting a crew on board, got her safe into Port Colborne in about five hours, having only lost her deck load.
