p.3 The Steamer St. George - We regret to learn, that this fine vessel on Monday morning last on her trip downwards, about thirty miles on this side of Toronto, was struck by the steam-boat William IV at the wheelhouse, which broke her starboard shaft beam. The damage consists of the mere breaking of the beam, no part of the machinery having been injured.

The St. George will be here to resume her trip on Saturday, agreeably to the advertisement to which we would beg to draw the attention of our readers.

The Steam Boat Great Britain was struck by lightning, on her way from Toronto to Niagara, on Thursday last. The fluid gouged a half-turn out of the topgallant and topmasts, but not so as to injure them materially.
