p.2 Taken or gone away from the lower end of Mr. Mitchell's store, on the night of the 8th inst., a Batteau. Whoever will return said Batteau, or inform the subscriber where it is will be reasonably rewarded.

John McArthur. Kingston, Sept. 15th, 1818.

p.3 5 people drown when small sailboat upsets and sinks between Amherst Island and Ernest Town; the boat was later raised from 18 fathoms of water, with sails set and half a ton of stone ballast inside.

Buffalo, Aug. 25th.

Steam Boat - The new Steam Boat, Walk-In-The-Water, lately finished at Black Rock, came up the rapids on Saturday, opposite to this village. On Sunday afternoon she left here for Detroit, touching at the intervening ports, on an experimental voyage, under the superintendence of Mr. McQueen, the engineer who constructed her machinery. Her motion through the water, from this place as correctly as could be judged from the shore, was at the rate of 7 miles an hour; and from every appearance, we doubt not that she will be found to fully answer the valuable purposes, for which she was designed.
