In an accident which occurred in the Lachine canal, on Tuesday night, the barge Regina, owned by the M.T. Co., was sunk and the barge Huron was also badly damaged. The mishap was due to the steamer Neepawah running into the gates at lock No. 1, and carrying them away. Both barges were loaded with grain. The Regina is in thirty feet of water.

The telegraphic despatch of the accident reads:

The steamer Neepawah carried away the gates of the canal, at Montreal, and the great rush of water swept two or three vessels down into the river with great force. The barge Regina was sunk and about $50,000 damage done to shipping in general.

p.4 Gananoque, Nov. 13th - The Merchants' Montreal liner Cuba, which has been unloading for the past week at Robertson's sheds, steamed out of the creek on her return this morning. She is the largest vessel that ever entered the creek here, and had on board 525 tons of coal.
