The steamers Algerian from Toronto; the Spartan from Montreal, and the Acadia from Chicago, called at Swift's wharf since yesterday.

Yesterday afternoon the schr. Vickery ran on a shoal at Johnston's Point, opposite Thousand Island Park. She left Chicago last Friday loaded with 21,000 bushels of corn for Ogdensburg. Capt. Massie was at the wheel. Before he left Chicago he told the captains of the schooners Leighton and Andrews that he was not afraid to go down the river as he was well acquainted with the channel. The boat is owned in Chicago. Capt. T. Donnelly received a telegram message this morning to go down and take charge of her. She is high on the shoal, and there is very little prospects of saving her. She is an old boat, but was completely rebuilt last year.
