p.2 Marine News - The tug Oswego, that went to the assistance of the schooner Chieftain, ashore 16 miles above Saugeen on Lake Huron, has returned, having failed to get the schooner off. The Chieftain is in about 2 feet water, and is perfectly safe from everything but the ice, which, if she is not floated down before winter, will be likely to injure her. [Detroit Advertiser]

-Gale on Lake Ontario - Disasters - Capt. Pratt, who left Toronto last evening, reports a violent gale on Lake Ontario on Wednesday. Four vessels were driven ashore near Toronto. A vessel, supposed to be the Jenny Lind, was ashore at Port Credit. [Detroit Tribune 5th]

-Last of the Napoleon - Capt. Pratt, Inspector of the North Western Insurance Co., returned last evening with the engine, boiler, anchor, chains, etc. of the propeller Napolean, lost near Saugeen last November. The engine is a little broken, but is, in the main, in as good order as could have been expected. [ibid]
