p.1 use of iron lower deck beams in ship built on South Shore.

p.2 Her Majesty's new Steamer Minos, recently built at Chippewa, has received her machinery and proceeded up Lake Erie a few days since, on her trial trip. She is very strongly built and goes at the rate of 12 miles an hour.

We regret to learn that Her Majesty's Steamer Traveller, Capt. Harper, encountered a severe gale on Sunday last - carrying away her rudder chains and wooden tiller. She was for some time in considerable danger. She arrived at Point Frederick on Sunday evening, having Commodore Sandom on board.

The William IV Steamer was raised by two schooners belonging to the Messrs. Ives of this place, on Saturday last. She arrived on Monday night, propelled by her own engine, and proceeded to Brockville. We understand it is the intention of the proprietors to build a new boat forthwith to receive the engine of the William.

The new beautiful steamer The Niagara, lately built by the Hon. John Hamilton, is plying regularly between this port and Toronto. She is not only very swift, but capable of carrying a large cargo and affording extensive accommodations for deck passengers. She accomplished her last downward trip from Toronto in 16 hours.
