p.3 Steam Barge Norman Burned - A telegram was received in town this morning to the effect that the steam barge Norman, Captain Goodearl, had been burned last night in Oswego harbour. No particulars were given, and it was supposed to be a total loss. Captain Murray, who left Oswego last night with the tug Glide, informed us, however, that the cabin and a portion of the stern only are burned, the damage not being very great. This is fortunate, as we understand there was no insurance on the craft. The Norman was plying between Trenton and Oswego with lumber.

Barge Wrecked - On Wednesday night or Thursday morning the steambarge Petronel, of Henderson, N.Y., while carrying lumber between Mill Point and Oswego, was driven on shore at the foot of the Island. We understand she is badly wrecked, and a large quantity of lumber is afloat from her cargo.

The steamer Hastings, which ran on Salt Point on Thursday night, has been pulled off by the Norseman.
