p.2 Royal Navy - Captains Drew and Graham have been called into the Service, as well as Lieutenants Harper and Clarke. Lieutenant Harper has already proceeded on a cruise in the splendid steamer Queen Victoria. Lieutenant Clarke has gone to join the squadron on Lake Erie. The fine schooner Jesse Wood has also been chartered by the Government. This will increase our squadron on the Lakes to four steam boats, 4 schooners, and a large number of gun boats.

Her Majesty's hired steamer Traveller, Capt. Sutherland, arrived last evening in 22 hours from Toronto, via Oswego. She landed despatches for England at that place, and also brought despatches for the Commandant etc. at this station.
