The Steamers - The Steamer Osprey, which left here for Hamilton, had to turn back twice; she started a third time, and the Bay of Quinte met her passing through the upper gap with every chance of getting to her destination, where she will lay up for the season. The St. Helen has gone to Picton. The Magnet, now on her last trip, had got to Port Hope on her way to Toronto when last heard from.

Sackett's Harbor, Dec. 3rd - The schooner N. Ballard, of Detroit, laden with wheat, destination Ogdensburg, went ashore Friday the 30th, about noon, on the Galoo Island Reef, about 1 1/4 miles north-west from the lighthouse, and the vessel beat over the shoal and went down at the east end of the reef in deep water. The captain and crew of ten men were lost. Up to this time only 3 bodies have been recovered.
