p.2 Oliver Cromwell - hit by two-masted schooner Jessie, Capt. Larkin.

Marine News - The schooner Hudson, Capt. Wilson, with a cargo of lumber from the Bay of Quinte for Oswego, went ashore at the Gap, Sunday night. The tug Morgan went to her assistance.

Capt. Hamilton, of the propeller Quincy, which came into port yesterday, informs us that on Sunday afternoon he found the schooner Metropolis of Cleveland, hard aground at Middle Island, about half way between Thunder Bay and Presque Isle. The Quincy lay by her for five hours and tried to pull her off, but failed, as the wind was blowing very fresh, and there was danger of the steamer being driven on a lee shore. Capt. H. sent down the Salvor from Mackinac to her relief. [Chicago Press 14th]

p.3 Imports - 19. (schooner St. James, Chicago, Hooker, Pridham & Co., 13,000 bushels wheat.)
