p.1 A Lively Experience - four men crossing from Howe Island on ferry; while using windlass to get across in a gale, the cable broke, a chain caught scow and it took two hours to get it unhooked, ferry drifted down the river two miles into small bay on Howe Island shore.

MARINE INTELLIGENCE.

The schr. Folger arrived in Oswego this morning. She has had a hard time of it.

It is feared the scows that cleared for bay ports, yesterday, to load buckwheat will be frozen in.

The schr. Grantham's cargo was divided between Breck & Booth, Swift & Co. and R. Crawford.

The strs. Melbourne, Arabian and Glengarry are still to arive. The Melbourne should get here this morning.

The new propeller built in Picton for A.W. Hepburn was to be launched today. She will have a capacity of 10,000 bushels and will be fitted out with superior machinery.

The schr. Queen of the Lakes is unloading coal at Breck & Booth's today. She loads buckwheat at Richardsons' for Oswego, but cannot get away before Monday night.

The penitentiary buoy got away from its moorings yesterday and wound up on S. Abbott's place on Wolfe Island. The Bolivia shoal buoy was found near the head of St. John's Island.

The S.S. Bannockburn passed Port Dalhousie at five o'clock this morning and will be in Kingston tonight. This is the steamer's sixth trip to Lake Superior since Sept. 9th. The Buffalo papers state that the Bannockburn was the only steamer on the lakes that did not stop for the recent gale. The Bannockburn did not lose an hour since she started running except five days delay caused by a break in the Welland canal. Had it not been for this break, she would have made seven trips up the lake. The Bannockburn lays up here.
