p.2 Gananoque - Queen laid up for winter.

p.3 Very Generous - A couple of gentlemen, authorities in marine matters, say that there is a general laugh over the credit claimed by Captain Patterson (vide Picton Times) for sacrificing his own interests in allowing the steamer Chieftain to go to the rescue of the Star crew ere proceeding to the relief of his vessel, the Babineau & Gaudry. The truth is that he did his very best to get the steamer to go and drag off his boat, irrespective of the Star or her crew, but the owners of the Chieftain thought that the lives of the crew of the Star were of more consequence than mere property, and went up to that wreck first. It was found afterwards that the other vessel was not in any bad strait for immediate aid.
