p.2 Steamer St. George - We regret to learn that this fine vessel, while on her passage from Prescott to Kingston, about one o'clock on Thursday morning last, struck on a rock 9 miles below French Creek, and got a hole in her bows. She continued her course to French Creek, where she is now lying. The cargo and furniture were all saved without receiving any material damage. It is expected that the St. George will proceed to Niagara on Monday to be repaired on the Railway. Captain Harper, the able and experienced commander of the St. George, was lying sick at Kingston at the time of the accident.

The undersigned, passengers on board the steamer Commodore Barrie, beg to offer to Capt. Patterson their thanks for his unremitted kindness and attention to themselves and the ladies accompanying them, and take the opportunity thus afforded them, to express the satisfaction they feel in having had the pleasures of their voyage so much heightened by the order and arrangement of every thing on board his excellent boat, and by the obliging demeanor of those persons under his direction.

Off Coburg, 18th July, 1836.

William Bingham, Thos. Benson,

Charles Allan, Edw. Beeston,

Auson Green, John Welsh,

Stephen Miles,

To Capt. Patterson,

Commander Commodore Barrie.
