p.2 The barque Niagara from Chicago, bound to Liverpool with 26,000 bushels corn, came into port on Sunday and is discharging a part of her cargo into a barge at Holcomb & Cowan's wharf, in order to pass through the canals. The corn is carried through at 57 cents a bushel, and her freight bill, if she reaches England in safety, will be $14,820.
p.2 Schooner Sorel A Total Wreck - The Canadian schooner Sorel, Capt. Stanton, with a carago of lumber from Whitby for this port to Smith & Post, went ashore Saturday morning about 12 miles up the lake, and is a total loss. The Captain attempted to make this port Friday night, but could not on account of there being no light after 12 o'clock. It is said that a "new broom sweeps clean," but this does not apply to Capt. Pringle, our new light house keeper. [Oswego Times, Nov. 18th]
