p.2 The steamer Illinois, which was aground in Lake Huron, was got off and arrived at Detroit on Wednesday. It became necessary to throw her cargo overboard, which will probably be a total loss. The whole bulk of her cargo was nearly 4,000 barrels, and very valuable. The boat was taken into the drydock.

We learn that the steamers on the Lakes running from Lewiston to Ogdensburgh, will not touch at Cape Vincent any more this fall for passengers. They were hauled off on Wednesday, and will now run from Lewiston to Oswego, Sackets Harbor, Kingston, etc. to Ogdensburgh. [Sentinel]

We learned yesterday that the propeller Oliver Cromwell, of this port, was in collision a few days ago with another propeller on Lake Erie, and sustained so much damage that she sunk in 12 feet water.
