p.3 Notice - At a Meeting of the Stockholders of the Steamboats, Henry Gildersleeve, and Prince of Wales, held on the 20th instant, pursuant to Notice, a dividend of Seven Pounds C'y. per share was declared payable at the Office of the Subcriber at and after the close of the meeting.

Stockholders are requested to call and receive their dividends at their earliest convenience.

Henry Gildersleeve, Agent Kingston, February 22nd, 1845.

Vessel Supposed to be Lost - On Friday the 14th instant, the schooner Brothers left Niagara for Toronto, with about twelve persons on board, since which she has not been heard of. The weather has been so tempestuous that the Transit steamer, lying in harbour, would not put out.

The Captain of the Brothers, however, thinking that he could weather it, started; and when last seen, the vessel was labouring in a field of ice.

Since writing the above, we have learned that the vessel hs been found, on her beam ends, and foremast gone, about twenty-five miles from Niagara, on the American shore, but not a soul on board. The probability is that all have perished. [British Canadian]
