p.2 Lord Elgin's Visit To Kingston - expected to arrive on Cherokee, might not be a good time.

Barriefield Regatta - Many enquiries are daily made about the coming off of this affair. The answer is, that until H.M.S. Cherokee returns to harbor, no arrangements can be made.

Marine - We learn from the Buffalo papers that on the night of the 17th, the steamer Fashion bound up, and the schooner Atlas, with a cargo, bound down, came in collision between Buffalo and Erie. The schooner had her bowsprit and night heads carried away and received other damage. The injury received by the Fashion has not yet been ascertained. The captain of the Atlas, immediately after the collision, requested to be towed into Erie, but the captain of the Fashion replied that it was impossible, as he was leaking badly. The lower lake Canadian schooner California and steamer Griffith came in collision the same night, below Cleveland, by which accident the schooner received much injury. A correspondent writes that the California is ashore ten miles below Cleveland. She was loaded with 2300 barrels of flour, and is insured for $11,500 in the North Western Company. The flour will probably all be saved in a damaged state. We believe the Griffith received no serious injury. Since the above was in type, we learn that the North Western Insurance Company has no policy on the California. The above, in relation to the insurance on that vessel, is a mistake.
