p.2 The loss of Captain Gaskin and the British Lion, that is so current about town today, cannot possibly be true. The infamous rumor has no foundation whatever in reality and how it could have gained currency is a matter of marvel.

-K.C. & M. - Capt. Patterson is going to raise the propeller Banshee, now lying submerged between Timber Island and South Bay Point in about 18' of water. The task will be easily performed, and the vessel will be placed in readiness for the fall trade.

The propeller Brantford, which has been rebuilt, and is now as good as new, left this morning for the western ports, on Saturday, in ballast. She looks exceedingly well.

-Imports - 3.

p.3 ad - Light-House Supplies - tenders called for supplying oil, and for a steam boat for delivery.

-ad for steamer Cataract, Capt. Ledyard, for Oswego & Rochester.

-ad for steamer Ontario, for Clayton and Ogdensburgh.
