p.3 Marine - At Swift's the propeller New York called en route to Ogdensburg from the Welland Canal and Oswego. The schr. Jessie McDonald arrived from Charlotte with coal.

-The schooner Ontario has made another quick trip. She left here on Friday at noon for Belleville, loaded 60,000 brick at Foster's establishment, and returned here yesterday morning.

-The following arrivals are reported at the M.T. Company's dock: Schr. Twilight, Toronto, 13,507 bush corn; Gold Hunter, Toronto, 12,569 bush wheat; Speedwell, Toronto, 14,250 bush corn; and S. & J. Collier, Toronto, 10,250 bush do.

The Bay Steamer - Armenia.

Accident - Yesterday the steamer Armenia intended to run to Cape Vincent with a herd of cattle. Steam was raised to the amount of about 20 lbs., when some part of the boiler gave out, and the escape of boiling water and steam was such as to scald the engineer about the right side in a very serious manner. He is now in the hospital receiving medical treatment. The accident was occasioned by some joint not being properly made. Had there been a greater pressure of steam the engineer might have been killed.
