p.2 Marine - The wind hauled into the northwest on Monday evening, and blew a gale during the night and all day yesterday, accompanied with occasional snow squalls. The Schooner E.K. Bruce, which cleared from this port on Monday evening for Toledo, had her main sail and jib split in the gale, soon after going out, and was driven ashore a short distance above the city. Her crew landed on Tuesday morning, leaving the vessel upon the rocks exposed to the action of a heavy sea. The Bruce had on railroad iron, and is said to be owned in Buffalo.

Schr. Isabel Ashore - A telegraph despatch says that the Schooner Isabel went ashore on Saturday night at Fairport. She was bound for Oswego with a cargo of wheat. [Oswego Journal, Wednesday]
