p.2 Forfeiture of a Canadian Vessel - The barque Fame has been forfeited to the U.S. Government. A Detroit paper says:

"Some time in the summer she took on a quantity of liquor at Amherstburgh, C.W., for Port Sarnia, C.W. She stopped here and at Port Huron, but failed to report the liquor, according to the provisions of the law, at either port, although requested to do so at the latter place. The Judge held the neglect to be unlawful, incurring the penalty of forfeiture. As it is said to be an unintentional oversight on the part of the master of the vessel, a probably successful application will be made to the Treasury Department to remit the penalty.

-Navigation of the Welland Canal - stopped by ice.
