p.2 The Weather - ...The ice has taken on the Bay and River in front of the Town across to Long Island....

It affords us much pleasure to copy from the Detroit Free Press of the 11th instant, the following testimonial of the gallantry and humanity displayed by our esteemed friend, Samuel Hoskin Derriman, Esq., R.N., of Her Majesty's Steamer Kingston:

"The subscribers, passengers on board the steamboat Star, from Cleveland to Toledo and Detroit, unite in returning thanks to S.H. Derriman, R.N., of her Majesty's steamer Kingston, for the promptness with which he hastened to their aid, with a boat's crew and anchor, as soon as he was informed that the steamboat on which they were passengers was aground near Malden: they acknowledge themselves indebted to his judicious and well directed exertions for their rescue from the perilous situation in which they had continued more than twenty-four hours, without any other prospect of relief than that which was rendered by the officer and his crew, to whom they now express their heary gratitude.

Malden, U.C. 9th December, 1839"

The above was signed by seven ladies and ten gentlemen, from the states of Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Ohio, and Michigan, whose names we have not room to insert. [Sandwich Herald]
