p.2 The Forwarding by the Canal is still increasing. The Ottawa Company's wharf present a constant scene of active Business, contrasted with the otherwise dull appearance of the town.
During the violent gale which prevailed the most part of yesterday, the steamer Margaret, in towing the Barge Mary to the Naval Depot for the purpose of loading, parted the towing cable, the consequence of which was, that the Mary, notwithstanding every exertion on the part of the people on board, drifted on Point Frederick, where she struck. We are happy however to have to state that she got off this morning without having sustained any material injury.
