p.2 The Steamer Grecian - The steamer Grecian, owing to the prevailing low water, struck this morning on her way up in the Gallops Rapids, and now lies in a bay this side of Edwardsburgh, situated near and below Prescott. The amount of damage sustained by the Grecian has not yet been ascertained.

Edwardsburg, Oct. 30th - The steamer Grecian struck in ascending Gallops Rapids this morning about 6:40, the water being unusually low. Captain Kelly ran her into the Bay and grounded her. She has knocked holes through freight and fore hatch, and the water is about fourteen feet deep at the stern; the stern has settled down to the promenade deck. The ferry-boat from Prescott is alongside, and will save most of her cargo. The passengers have been forwarded by train.
