p.2 Capt. Thomas Campbell, of brig John Rae, rescues man adrift in skiff off Simcoe Island.

-The Storm Last Night - The wind was very high all last night, and the storm upon the lake must have been severe. The steamer Mayflower broke from her moorings at Anderson & Ford's wharf, and drifted to the east end of the Cataraqui Bridge, where she lies grounded on the stern. In passing by the Shoal Tower she knocked off one of the iron shutters and displaced another. (pages 3 & 4 missing)
