p.2 Wrecked - We understand that the freight steamer Ontario went ashore at Nicholson's Island, near Presqu' Isle, in the gale of Sunday last, and is likely to prove a complete wreck unless soon relieved from her present position, a matter of no little difficulty at this season of the year. The Ontario had on board a general cargo shipped at Montreal.

Buffalo, Nov. 27th, 3 p.m. - The steamer May Flower went ashore on Point aux Pelee on Friday. The passengers were saved by the steamer Ocean. A strong gale prevailed upon the Lake, and there is a report this morning that the May Flower had entirely gone to pieces.
