p.2 Mr. Cotton's Case - Collector of Customs in trouble at Port Credit but denies guilt.

Loss of the Propeller Bay State - Oswego, Nov. 3 - The Prop Bay State, Capt. John Brown, with 40 or 50 passengers, left here for Ogdensburgh last night. Pieces of that fine boat, and portions of her freight are now being washed ashore, and it is feared that she has been lost with all her crew and passengers in the terrific gale of Sunday night. Two schooners were driven ashore opposite this city.

There were only 6 passengers and 16 of a crew on board the prop Bay State, foundered off this port. We only learn the name of one passenger, Orley Thompson, of Vermont. The beach for miles is strewn with portions of her cargo and wreck. She was bound for Lake Erie, loaded with merchandize. The vessel was valued at $14,000. Cargo probably worth $20,000 or $30,000.

The schooner Annie Moulton, with wheat, barley and rye from Canada, lost her

canvass in the gale off this port last night, and went ashore near Sandy Creek.

The schooners Mary Ann with grain, and Gazelle with lumber, both from Canada, are ashore down the lake.
