Notice to Mariners - Notice is hereby given by order of the Light House Board, that in consequence of the destruction of a portion of the South pier at the harbor of St. Joseph, in the State of Michigan, the beacon light at that place will be discontinued until further notice.

The C.J. Kershaw In An Atlantic Gale - Letters just received from England, says the Cleveland Herald, state that the barque C.J. Kershaw, when on her passage to Cleveland, was met on the 7th of this month, by a terrific gale from the westward. The ship was struck by a fearful sea, filling the deck and cabin with water, and compelling the bulwarks to be cut away and forty crates of earthenware to be thrown overboard in order to relieve her. The deck was swept clean of spare spars, water casks, storehouses, etc. The jolly boat was badly stove and broken in two places; spanker boom sprung; main and maintopmast stay broken; foretopmast staysail split in pieces; and maintopsail blown to pieces. The Kershaw put back to Falmouth, a seaport on the S.W. coast of England, where she repaired damages and sailed again on the 15th for Cleveland.

Vessel Ashore - The schooner Dane, a new vessel, on her first trip, owned by Mr. McCollum, of Oswego, and loaded with salt for this port, went ashore south of the government pier on Sunday night. We understand that she had got fairly between the two piers, and had made fast inside, when a heavy squall came up, causing her to break her line, and drove her ashore. As far as we could learn, she was not materially injured, and will be easily got off. [Milwaukee Sentinel]

Schooner Miranda Ashore - Intelligence reached this city yesterday that the schooner Miranda on her passage from Oswego to this port with pig and bar iron and iron pipe, was ashore at St. Helena. She is owned by G. Traviss, and is insured in the North-western and Farmers and Mechanics', of Philadelphia. [Chicago Press]
