p.2 Murray Canal - route being surveyed. [Belleville Intelligencer]

p.3 K.C. & M.

-Propeller West - arrived from Presqu' Isle, went on to Cape Vincent, several vessels laid up at Presqu' Isle.

-The Vessel Sunk Near Timber Island - The unknown vessel which, some time since, we reported sunk between Timber Island and South Bay Point, is still there. She lies in about 60 or 70 feet of water, her topsails (nicely clewed up) and the peak of her mainsail appearing above the surface. Parties living in the vicinity know nothing about her crew or how she got into that position.

-The Theresa - Great fears are entertained here that the schooner Theresa, owned by W.A. Chisholm, Esq. of this town, Reuben Wynn master, has been lost on Lake Ontario; as nothing has been heard from her since leaving Port Dalhousie about three weeks since. We trust that she may yet turn up all safe. [St. Catherine's Journal]

-prop Ontario sunk at wharf at Ogdensburgh.

-Imports - 12.
