Full Text

p.1 letter to editor of the Quebec Gazette about navigation of St. Lawrence and Western Lakes - enlarging St. Lawrence canal locks would be a boon to commerce with England.

p.2 Accident to the Royal Mail Steamer Niagara - We regret extremely that this fine steamer on her downward trip on Monday evening last got aground in the Harbour of Port Hope during a tremendous westerly gale where she still remains. Hopes, however, are entertained that through the energies of her experienced commander, Capt. Sutherland, she will be speedily got off and resume her place on the line.

The Schooner Brock, Capt. Pearson, left Wellington Square at the head of the Lake on Monday last, with a heavy cargo of flour, wheat and staves. She was overtaken with one of the heaviest gales ever witnessed by the oldest seaman on the Lake. She lost part of her deck load and made the Port of Kingston in 16 hours.

The steamer Union, Captain Drummond, made good her trip from Rochester to Kingston in the same gale.

In consequence of the fall of the water on Lake Ontario, being at least three feet lower than usual, Presque Isle and other harbors do not afford the ordinary protection this season, heavy vessels being unable from the shallowness of the water to approach them.
