Maritime Extracts

The Canadian schooner Harriet Ann, which left this port before the gale of yesterday, is reported ashore down the lake.

The schooner Bonnie Doon, bound from Chicago to Oswego with a cargo of wheat, was dismasted off Rondeau, Lake Erie, on Saturday. [Buffalo Express]

On a Reef - The propeller Oriental, bound from Chicago for this port with a cargo of beef and other rolling freight, ran on Skillagalee reef, Lake Michigan, last Friday. Several passing propellers have attempted to pull her off, but without success. Capt. Briggs had thrown overboard 2000 bbls beef, but was still unable to get her off. He had sent to Detroit for two steam pumps. We fear the heavy blow of yesterday was too much for her. Cargo insured in New York offices. [ib]

Goderich, C.W., Oct. 19th - The propellor Troy, bound from Chicago to Buffalo, with 11,000 bushels of wheat, foundered last night, ten miles off Pointe Dubuque, (probably Point aux Barques.) A boat, with three of her crew, ran ashore near this place. The life-boat, with 18 of her crew, and three ladies, have not yet been heard of.

-severe gale at Buffalo, steamer International, employed by the Buffalo and Lake Huron railway as a ferry boat, broke loose from her moorings and went down the Niagara river.

-during Saturday and Monday 2 steamers, 12 props, 4 barques, 4 brigs, 50 schooners arrive at Buffalo. [Buffalo Courier]
