p.2 There are several stories in circulation respecting the affair which occurred on board the steam-boat Queenston on the evening of Sunday the 19th ult. According to the statement published in the Brockville Gazette, Captain Gray was most shamefully treated by the Master of the Queenston; but as the subject will probably undergo legal investigation at the Assizes now sitting in the town of Brockville, we abstain for the present, from giving publicity to any of the particulars that have reached us.

p.3 A fine American Steam-boat, called the United States, appeared in our harbour for the first time on Friday last. She is fitted up much in the same style as the Great Britain, and her speed is said to be about ten miles an hour.

Died - at York, Mr. John Dennis, 73, formerly Master Builder in the Kingston Dock Yard.
