p.2 From the Buffalo Commercial of Monday.

Vessel Sunk - We learn that the brig C.A. Demis loaded with coal, etc., bound for Chicago, was run into by the brig Caroline, between Cleveland and Point au Pelee, a few nights since and sunk almost immediately. None of the crew were drowned. The C.A. Demis was owned by E.K. Bruce, of this city, and was worth about $6,000. She was only partially insured.

Ashore - The Milwaukee Sentinel says the schooner Luther Wright, which arrived at that port on Thursday last from this city, went ashore near Balley's harbor on her passage up, and was obliged to throw over board a deck load of shingles in order to lighten her off.

Probable Loss of the Steamer Fashion - The Chicago Press of the 27th ult. learns that the steamer Fashion, on her last trip up from Green Bay, run on the Kewaunee reef, in a fog, where she now lies in a critical situation. Further particulars not known.
