p.2 The Steamer Admiral - Some anxiety was felt relative to the fate of this steamer in the late gale, but we are happy to say that she reached Oswego in safety. It appears that on Thursday night last, the Admiral left Cobourg for Rochester, but had been only a short time out of port when the breaking of a crank pin rendered her machinery useless, and she was put under sail, and in this way made Oswego.

The propellor Henry Clay capsized, on Lake Erie, on Thursday last. Of the captain, crew and passengers, only one was saved. The Henry Clay was freighted for Ogdensburgh.

It is feared that the steamer Empire, of Buffalo, foundered in the gale on Thursday night, as nothing had been heard of her on Monday.
