p.2 A telegram was received last night by Mr. Smith, of this city, to the effect that the small schooner Elizabeth, on which he had shipped a large quantity (over 7,000) of sheep pelts on Friday last, had not been yet heard of at Oswego, where the telegram was dated and whence the cargo was assigned. As the Elizabeth was compelled to run back and anchor in the Batteau Channel over Sunday, owing to stress of weather, the probability is that she is in some safe harbor on the route of her destination.

Since writing the above, the master of the Elizabeth has arrived in town and reports the vessel safe, and waiting for a favorable breeze to finish her voyage.

p.3 Imports - 7th - Str Watertown, Cape Vincent - (mixed cargo)
