Accident To the Steamer Algerian - Montreal, Aug. 12th - The steamer Algerian, on her down trip last night, struck on the Split Rock, and is now in a bad condition. Her passengers are all landed safely and left for Montreal by the 8 o'clock train this morning.

Montreal - more details of accident to Algerian.

Down The River - details of excursion.


A Card - I observed on the daily Whig of the 10th an article under the above heading taken from the Palladium of Oswego having reference to a ship pump on exhibition in that city by Messrs. Brown, McCarthy & Co., and manufactured by parties in Kingston. It appears from that that the pump is such as to get noticed and I have doubt of this being the case as the pump is made from my old patent Atlantic ship pump, which patent expired last year. It is also stated that the pump is so constructed as to hold its own priming independent of the valves. If this be the case it can be only effected by the elevation of the suction pipes above the lower boxes, which is covered by my present patent and is a very important part of my invention. But here as well as in United States, and I wish it to be properly understood that any parties either manufacturing or using this part of my patent without my consent will be prosecuted for the same according to law.

Kingston August 12th J. Brokenshire .

p.3 Struck - Algerian hit Split Rock on trip down river.

Bound Up - yacht Peerless on way back to Belleville.

Yachting - Union Jack of Belleville won first prize in late regatta here, and then won a match against Kill Time at Alexandria Bay.
