p.2 In the Water at Midnight - Capt. James Mahoney, of the sloop Minnie, had a narrow escape from drowning about midnight Friday. His vessel had arrived in Richardsons' elevator slip with grain, and the captain, in stepping on to the float to reach the wharf, fell into the water. The place was pitch dark. Capt. Mahoney yelled for help, and with the assistance of his mate and "Admiral" Wood he was safely landed.

Last night the steamer New York, now ready for the Buffalo exposition, was lighted up, and presented a brilliant sight. Captain Gallivan, of Buffalo, was highly pleased, and stated that it was the best lighted steamer he had ever seen; its effect was equal to the electric tower in Buffalo.

p.8 Steamer & Barges Ashore - Cardinal, Ont., May 11th - The steamer Porter, having in tow three vessels, loaded with three thousand tons of coal, are aground here. The steamer's lines parted when leaving the lock at the Gallop rapids, and she became unmanageable, going on the rocks, while the three vessels drifted on the Glassford shoal. The fleet are in a bad condition, and making water fast. They are owned by A.W. Hepburn, Picton, and were en route to Montreal. It will be a difficult matter to release them.
