The large Steamboat WILLIAM IV, experienced a heavy gale on Lake Ontario, a few days since, and took water so fast, that she was run on shore at South Bay, to prevent her from sinking.

The WILLIAM the 4th. Steamer, was raised by two schooners, belonging to Messrs. Ives of this place, on Saturday last. She arrived here on Monday night, propelled by her own engine, and proceeded to Brockville. We understand it is the intention of the proprietors to build a new boat forthwith, to receive the engine of the WILLIAM. - Kingston Chronicle, Nov. 18.
