p.2 The Late Gale - Picton, Nov. 7th - The large black vessel, reported yesterday, name unknown, is the International, of Chicago, from Chicago, consigned to George Chaffey & Co., Kingston, loaded with 18,000 bushels of corn. She went to pieces last night. She was commanded by Mark McGin. The captain and five of the crew floated ashore on pieces of the wreck in an exhausted condition. They had been thirty-six hours lashed fast. Two of the crew and a woman were drowned. The names of those drowned are Francis Scott, from the vicinity of Kingston; David Broderick, residence unknown; and Mrs. Ellen Newcomb from Rochester.

Prospects are that the Maggie, ashore at Gull Point, will be floated off.

The Annie Maude, ashore at Wellington, will likely prove a total loss.

Oswego, Nov. 8th - The schooner Morning Light is at anchor off Stony Point Light, with a flag of distress flying. A tug has gone to her assistance. The gale has abated.
