The Niagara Navigation company's steamer Chicora lies at Toronto, with her engine effectively disabled for the rest of the season, as a result of the piston rod in the port cylinder of the engine breaking near the cross-head while the boat was ten miles out from Toronto on the return trip from Niagara.

Battery Yacht Sank - During the violent gale of a few nights ago, the battery yacht while lying at her moorings, pounded heavily upon some iron spikes lying on the river bed. The result was several holes punched in the bottom of the craft. She listed badly, and sank at the dock. This morning the sergeants secured the services of Capt. Donnelly, and the steamer Donnelly, of the Wrecking & Salvage Co., came to the rescue of the unfortunate craft.
