p.3 We learn that Mr. Ranney's mill at St. Catharines was destroyed by fire on Sunday night. Two schooners, the North America and Martha Freme, that were lying alongside, loaded with wheat, caught fire, but it was promptly extinguished, and the vessels were hauled off to a place of safety.... [Hamilton Express]

We regret to learn that the barge Emily was sunk below the Lachine Rapids, while making a descent. She was laden with 4000 bushels of wheat. Two or three other barges, we are also informed, are on shore at Coteau du Lac. A barge has also been sunk going up with a general cargo. [Montreal Times]
