The Maritime History of the Great Lakes

The Toronto Guardian states that during the recent boisterous gales on the lakes, much damage has been done to several steamers and other vessels. "William IV", we understand, was so endangered on one of her trips, as made it necessary for 150 barrels of flour to be thrown overboard. "Gildersleeve" burst her boiler, and dangerously scalded two of the firemen, but has resumed her trips. The "Queen" sprung a leak, on returning to Niagara, and took in much water, but is now plying as usual. The "Great Britain" has been so injured as to be laid up for the season. It gives us pleasure to add, we have not heard of the loss of any lives. Niag. Rep.
