p.2 The steamer Bay State, Capt. Ledyard, came up on Saturday, and went up to Genesee. She is not materially damaged by her late accident, running upon the rocks in the St. Lawrence. The Brig Oxford, which cleared from this port on Friday evening with railroad iron, was struck by a squall when about twenty miles out and completely dismasted, her fore and mainmast and bowsprit with all her sails being carried away. The crew left her and came into port in the small boat on Saturday, and the steamer Bay State went out and towed in the Oxford. [Journal]

Schooner Saratoga Lost - The schooner Saratoga, Captain Joseph Allen, foundered in the lake about twenty miles from this city last evening about 11 o'clock. She was loaded with 95,000 feet of lumber consigned to Messrs. Smith and Post. The captain and crew took to the yawl boat and arrived here this morning between 4 and 5 o'clock. The vessel and lumber will probably be a total loss. The Saratoga was owned by Capt. F. Igo of this city, and we understand was insured. [Oswego Times 14th]
