Had To Leave Cattle - When the steamer Pierrepont, carrying a shipment of cattle for the Messrs. Weber, got over to Simcoe Island on Friday afternoon, it had to lighten its cargo, and put some of the cattle off on the island. The steamer, when it left Kingston, was loaded too heavily on the bow, which caused the rudder to be suspended out of the water. The cattle also moved about considerable and caused the boat to list at a very dangerous angle. Upon reaching Simcoe Island it ran in and put off forty of the cattle and proceeded to Cape Vincent. When the cattle were to be taken on again, it was found that two of them were missing. The cattle may have taken to the water and swam away or else some one has got them safely put away.
