p.3 Hamilton Steam-Boat Company - At a meeting of the Directors held in this town on the 1st inst., to receive tenders for the building of a steam vessel, several offers were made, which remain under consideration. Capt. Mackenzie of Kingston, who was appointed by the Directors, to act in behalf of the said company, has since, we are informed, obtained offers for the building department on much lower terms than those submitted to the meeting. [Western Mercury]

On Saturday last, a Durham-boat belonging to Messrs. McPherson and Crane, of Prescott, loaded with Wheat, was sunk about two miles above this place, but by the timely assistance of other boats, the Wheat was mostly saved, and the Boat has been repaired and returned to Prescott. The damage, we understand, is trifling. [Cornwall Observer]
