p.2 We regret to learn from the Picton Sun, that a small schooner belonging to H. Hermance of Hay Bay was upset in the gale of Friday last, and 2 of the hands drowned - the other, a young lad, was rescued from the wreck by Captain Bonter, of the Steamer Brockville, at considerable risk, after being two or three hours in the water.

Board of Works Office, 18th Oct.

An American Revenue Schooner visited our port yesterday, and fired a salute of 10 guns; the officers came ashore, and called upon Mr. Rorke, who accompanied them to Loomis' Hotel, after which they went a "deer hunting." Their visit is said to be merely a pleasure exursion. [Picton Sun]
