p.2 We regret to learn that the Steamboat Niagara is still on the shoal off Poplar Point. The Dalhousie left this port for Prescott, yesterday morning - it being, we understand, her last trip for this season.

The Charlotte is also laid up - and is, we are informed, to run no more. She has now, for eight successive seasons plied between the Carrying Place, Kingston and Prescott, with a degree of regularity highly creditable to Captain Gilderslieve. Her career, though perhaps not so brilliant as that of some other boats sailing from our port, has certainly been marked with usefulness to the public - and we have no doubt with substantial advantage to the proprietors.

Captain Gilderslieve intends building another boat on an approved plan in the course of the winter - and which is to supply the place of the Charlotte.

Casualty - We are sorry to learn that on Wednesday last Alexander McIntyre, late carpenter on board the Frontenac steam-boat, was unfortunately drowned in the St. Lawrence. He left Kingston on the morning of that day in a small skiff, and proceeded to his farm in Pittsburgh. The skiff having upset by some accident, the poor man was plunged into a watery grave. The body has not yet been found. The deceased was a native of Argyleshire, in Scotland, and was an industrious well behaved man.
