p.2 The Great Britain - A paragraph has been going the rounds of the American papers for some time past, stating that this noble steamer had been burnt by the pirates.

Now for the special information of all persons interested in this matter, we beg leave to assure them that on this day (the 1st of December, 1838,) we have seen with our own eyes the steamer Great Britain snugly moored at the south side of Point Frederick, near Kingston, and under the protection of the guns of Fort Henry.

p.3 Capt. Graham, R.N. cruising in armed steamboat Cobourg between Presque Isle and Windsor Bay, to protect coast from sympathizers. [Cobourg Star]
