p.3 Marine News

The schooner Augusta, which collided with the Lady Elgin, arrived yesterday morning with grain for Buffalo. She was detained during the day for the purpose of procuring a new foreboom, having carried away her former one on her voyage down. She proceeded on her voyage last evening.

We noticed yesterday more or less effects of the recent gale among the various craft which passed during the day. The Eagle Wing was minus her flying jibboom, it having been broken short off at the cap. The barque E.B. Morgan had lost her fore-royalmast, and the brig Treat her top-gallant-sail; besides many others slightly disabled in various ways.

The schooner Mary B. Hale, detained for some days repairing, took her departure westward on Wednesday evening.

The schooner Hugh Barclay, from Cardiff, was discharging at Buenos Ayres on the 8th of August.

The schooner Exchange, which arrived here from Buffalo, reports the schooner Marselliott capsized on Monday night off Port Bruce. The captain and crew were lost. [Cleveland Herald, Sept. 26th]

The brig Ocean Wave, lying near the foot of Commercial street, was struck by lightning during the severe storm on Monday evening, shivering her mainmast, and tearing up some of the deck plank. No one was injured. [Buffalo Express, 26th]

The schooner Philena Mills, which cleared from this port on Friday last, is reported ashore about twenty miles above Long Point, near the cut, in about two feet of water. Her captain, who left for his vessel this morning, reports another ashore a short distance from her, supposed to be the Fletcher. [Buffalo Commercial, 26th]
