p.3 Marine - The Hastings - On Thursday evening the steamer Hastings got aground on Salmon Point. She was pulled off by the steamer Norseman.

Steam Barge Petronel - This boat, laden with 50,000 or 60,000 feet of lumber, bound for Oswego, ran aground on the south of Amherst Island on Tuesday. Her fires were either put out or her machinery became deranged, and so she drifted ashore.

Steam Barge Norman - A telegram from Oswego this morning stated that the steam barge Norman, Capt. Goodearl, was burned last night. On enquiry we learn that the case is not so bad as report would lead one to infer. The steam barge did take fire last evening, and her cabin and hold in the vicinity of the engine room were considerably damaged, but the boat is still afloat and can be repaired. No insurance. The Norman has been trading during the past season between Trenton and Oswego.

W.W. - steam barge Norman burned at Oswego last night. Captain Goodearle must have sustained considerable of a loss.

- race between Geneva and Belle declared off.
