Shipwreck on Lake Ontario - The Henry Clay, on her first voyage from Oswego to Cleveland in Ohio, was upset in a squall off Niagara, on the 20th July, and immediately sunk. She had 600 barrels of salt as cargo; of nine persons on board - three only were saved; and these solely by the exertions of Capt. Richardson of the steam packet Canada.
The passengers of the Canada, by a just and involuntary call upon their feelings have, in a letter to Captain Richardson, expressed their admiration and praise at the perseverance and skill he evinced in rescuing these individuals; which, from the violence of the gale and the roughness of the lake, nothing short of his humane and resolute activity, and that of his brave crew, could have accomplished.
p.3 Notice - The Stockholders in the Steam-boat William the Fourth, are requested to pay ten per cent, on each Share subscribed on or before the 23rd August next.
