      The Hamilton Spectator says that even in the sheltered Burlington Bay, during the late gale, two mishaps to shipping occurred. The freight steamer NAPOLEON, of Dundas, was wrecked, and now lies high and dry upon the embankment just below Dundas. Her machinery is much injured. The schooner PREMIER, of Montreal, was dismasted, both masts being snapped close to the deck.
