p.2 Marine - The schooner Ariadne, which went ashore on the bar at Newcastle, has completed her repairs at the shipyard, and was relaunched this afternoon. The damage she received was abaft her larboard bow, where a hole was knocked through her planks sufficiently large for the admission of an ordinary sized man. Of course the damage did not extend to her inside lining or it would have been impossible for the steam pumps to have kept her afloat. The Ariadne makes room for one of Mr. Jones' barges going on for repairs. The sloop Sarah, of Gananoque, is at the yard for the purpose of being turned into a small steam propeller. The schooner Defiance is still on the shoal off Snake Island, and efforts are still being made for her release. Great difficulty has been experienced in approaching her sufficiently near to work to advantage, and from the late rough weather, the observation of great caution being required in prosecuting the work. Today the water is comparatively smooth, and the weather calm, and in consequence hopes are entertained of the operations being successful. The marine inspector reports the gales on the upper lakes as being more than ordinarily severe, but he has received no information of disasters other than those which have been made known through the public press.
