p.1 A Fine New Steamer - R. & O. Company have purchased new steamer for lower St. Lawrence.

p.4 Prince Edward County - South Marysburgh, Dec. 6th - The schr. Burton arrived from Oswego on Saturday and has gone into winter quarters at South Bay.

Capt. Parsons, Buffalo, representing the insurance company on the hull of the schr. Glenora, has arrived, and with Capts. T. Donnelly and Taylor will hold a survey. The vessel's cargo will be discharged but as it is now too late to ship by water to Montreal, the wheat will be stored here until the opening of navigation in the spring.

The tug Thompson arrived from Montreal with three barges this morning. All the company's barges, between fifty and sixty, are now at the docks. The men have all been dismissed with the exception of seven or eight crews who are engaged laying up the barges.

The damages to the schr. Flora Carveth have been assessed at $2,000 to be borne by the cargo and vessel both of which were insured. She was sunk at the piers at Sodus.

The schr. Ella Murton arrived in port this morning, light, to lay up. Capt. Saunders has had a very good season and made considerable on his last trip.
