The steamer Ruby arrived yesterday afternoon, reports a large fore-and-after, grain laden, bound down, to all appearances hard on. Two tugs were rendering her assistance. The name of the vessel was not ascertained. [Detroit Advertiser 19th]

The schooners W.G. Grant and Transport, which left this port on Friday evening, came in collision in the bay. The Grant had her head gear carried away, and returned to port for repairs. The Transport proceeded on her voyage.

The schooner Silas Wright, bound from Barcelona to this port, light, went ashore between the former port and Dunkirk, on Thursday night. She will prove a total loss. She was owned by Captain A. Van Norman.

The barque Pomeroy that collided with the schooner Mary B. Hall, has arrived here. In the collision she lost her foretopmast, foremast head, spars, etc., also her big anchor and some fifty fathoms of chain. She is leaking badly, but probably has not damaged cargo. She will have to go into dry dock. Her repairs will cost $500. [Buffalo Express 17th]

The barque D.C. Pierce loads from Cardiff to Havana with iron, and reloads at Minititlan with dyewoods and mahogany for Liverpool. [Cleveland Herald 17th]
