p.2 Mr. Joseph Doyle received a letter from Mr. Davidson, Agent Marine Inspector containing the following:

The Oshawa is in a very bad condition and it is doubtful if she can be got off the rocks in South Bay. Bilges, stem and sternboard badly started.

The Moffat is even in a worse state than the Oshawa, and is, in fact, a complete wreck. Some of her cargo has been taken away. A portion of the Oshawa's cargo is now being discharged at Doyle's wharf consigned to Montreal.

-the steamer Boston has become the property of Messrs. Chaffey of Kingston, towed from Ogdensburgh to Kingston.

-Minnesota ashore on Summer Island. [Buffalo Com. Advert.]
