p.2 On Friday the 16th inst., as the schooner John Simpson of Whitby was on her passage from Oswego to Kingston, and soon after leaving the former port, she encountered a heavy gale, in whch she lost both her masts. The Express steamer passed by at the time, and though within 40 rods of her, paid no attention to the signal of distress from the unfortunate schooner. We leave it to the public to judge of such cold-blooded and heartless conduct.

p.3 Ham vs Macpherson et al - another court case arising out of the big Kingston waterfront fire in April, 1840. [Colonist]
