p.1 Late Local News - The schr. White Oak, Capt. Saunders, was stripped today.

The schr. Watertown, Capt. Beaupre, was laid up at Portsmouth last week.

The sloop Moravia is loading 70,000 feet of lumber for Morristown.

The vessel ashore in Mexico Bay, 25 miles below Oswego, proves to be the schr. Ariadne, bound from Toronto with 10,000 bushels of barley. When off Oswego she lost her mainmast and drifted down the lake and went ashore. Capt. McKay was washed overboard and drowned, and during the day two more of the crew were frozen to death. The other three took to the rigging and were rescued. The vessel has gone to pieces. She was valued at $3,500.



The prop. Nipegon (sic - Nipigon) is ashore on Salmon Point. She is light and lying easy.

Mr. Wise, chief engineer of the Rideau canal, says the only repairs needed will be the replacing of sills at Davis' locks, near Kingston.

The schr. H. Dudley, laden with grain for Oswego, ran ashore near Finkle's Point, a mile above Bath, on Wednesday. She was released yesterday and has not received any damage. She is now here.
