p.2 The Cleveland Plain Dealer states that the schooner Conductor, from Cleveland for Toronto, over a week since, laden with 8,000 bushels of corn, went ashore at Long Point, during the late snow storm, and both vessel and cargo are a total loss. She was owned by Mr. McLeod, of Amherstburg, C.W., and was insured in Toronto companies for $4000. Her cargo was also insured in Toronto Companies for $5000.

The Buffalo Democracy gives the following particulars of one of the most singular accidents which has ever happened in navigation. The propeller Cinncinnatti was caught in the gale of last week on Lake Huron. During the storm, a heavy hawser, coiled on the fore-castle deck, was washed overboard by the sea. Soon after, the engine stopped, and on examination it was found that the hawser had been caught by the screw and wound completely about it in numerous coils. Before the screw could be relieved, the unmanageable craft went ashore on the Canadian side.
