p.2 Buffalo, June 10th - About 11 1/2 o'clock last night, while the schooner Marion was making her way into port, she met a steamer going out, and was obliged to anchor outside the pier. The wind, which had been blowing pretty fresh, increased to a gale, and about 1 o'clock this morning a squall struck the schooner, driving her broadside on the pier, when she went to pieces. Four of the hands were lost; one of them, named B. McDonald, who resided near the city of Toronto, has left a widow and several children. The captain, with the mate and one of the hands, had gone ashore to procure the assistance of a steam-tug to tow them in, but when they returned the vessel was wrecked. She was owned in Buffalo and fully insured.

By Auction - The whole of the St. Mary Foundry, tools and stock, will be sold on the 30th of June, without reserve; (much detail about equipment); proprietor John Wilson, foundry is at Montreal. (made engine for steamer Ocean Wave - ed.)
