p.3 Chambly Canal - survey work continues. [Canadian Courant, Nov. 20th]

Mr. Marcus F. Whitehead has been appointed Collector at Port Hope, in the District of New-Castle.

On Wednesday night we experienced a heavy gale of wind from the south-west, which continued during several hours with great violence. The Schooner Commodore Owen, which had sailed in the course of the day, was compelled to put back, having her sails split to pieces by a sudden gust. - While at anchor in the harbor, a trusty seaman named Jacob Lenander, who had been placed on deck as a watchman about four o'clock the next morning, was not found at his post by the man who was appointed to relieve him. - It is conjectured that the unfortunate man fell overboard, and sunk without being able to alarm his shipmates. That part of the bay where the schooner rode out the gale, was reportedly swept yesterday, though without finding the body.
