The Yacht BELLE, of Kingston, which left here last Monday, the 4th, for Kingston has not been heard from since, and it is feared that she is lost. The steamer INDIAN which left here for Montreal, chartered by Capt. Charles Perry, of the steamer BOWMANVILLE, was wrecked below Cobourg and put in last Thursday at Newcastle to take in some flour, but in consequence of the gale that was blowing so hard had to put out again. The steamer RANGER broke down coming up from Montreal and had to put into some port east of this. – Toronto Atlas
