p.2 Ashore - The schr. Annandale went ashore in the gale of Friday night near Niagara. She was bound for Charlotte, light. The Annandale is owned by Capt. Mowat, of Kingston.

p.3 Marine Court - On Tuesday night Justice James gave a final hearing in a case of trespass alleged to have been committed by Capt. Devana, of the steambarge Adventure. The Beaver says: On Saturday last the captain arrived in port, armed with instructions from A. Gunn, Esq., M.P., Kingston, to take a cargo of lumber, which the latter claimed by virtue of a judgement against George Lott, which Mr. Gunn had purchased. The Adventure tied up at Stephenson's dock and began to take on her cargo. Mr. Morris, in charge of the lumber yard, objected to this, as he had instructions to allow no lumber to be removed without the written order of Mr. Stevenson. The latter was communicated with, and Devana was ordered to desist. This he refused to do, and Jerry went and arrested him for petty trespass. The case was enlarged from time to time, but on Tuesday was tried out. The captain was convicted of trespass and fined $8 and $5 costs, or thirty days in jail, but his counsel gave notice of appeal to the County Court. Mr. D.H. Preston appeared for complainant, and Messrs. J.H. Madden and J. Whiting, of B.M. Britton's office, Kingston, for defendant.
