p.2 meeting of stockholders of Welland Canal Company on 2nd June; they are upset that the last session of the present Parliament decided where the canal would start and end, and the stockholders believed they had the right to make that decision. [Niagara Gleaner]

Disaster - On Sunday night, a boat owned by Mr. G.B. Tibbets, of Prescott, and freighted principally with ashes, filled and capsized in the rapids opposite Waddington. The amount of loss is not yet ascertained; but it is supposed it will be considerable. For, should every barrel of the ashes be recovered, it will necessarily be a good deal damaged, from lying in the water for a time. But the most melancholy part of the disaster is, that two men were drowned. They were both passengers; one a Canadian Frenchman, name not learned; the other, an Indian of St. Regis, who had been in this village to dispose of a quantity of fur, and was on his return home when the fatal accident occurred. [Ogdensburg Gazette, June 7th]
