p.3 Storms on Land and Lake - The oldest navigators scarcely remember more severe storms at this season that have swept along Lake Ontario for some days past. We suppose the gales about these days may be set down to the credit of the Equinoctial. [Rochester Post]

We are happy to see the spirit of enterprise going ahead among our citizens of Canada West. During the summer the steam schooner Precursor has been running between this port and Toronto, making regular trips. She arrived here on Tuesday evening, with 108 colored emigrants for Jamaica, and starts again this evening for Toronto. She is commanded by Capt. Britton, an old and experienced seaman, who with her owner, Mr. W.H. Kittson, of Cobourg, well deserve the encouragement of the public. [Montreal Herald]
