p.2 Vessel Ashore on Snake Island - The barque Jane C. Woodruff, timber laden, from Toronto to Garden Island, struck bottom with her centre board last night at Snake Island, and was held fast. She was got off this morning by the steamer William without any damage, and safely towed to her destination.

A Fine Spectacle - The propeller Boscobel arrived at Detroit on the 5th inst., and her captain informed a gentleman of this city that on his voyage he counted on Lake Huron no less than 76 sails and 15 propellers all in view at the same time, a magnificent marine spectacle, and witnessed, perhaps, not more than once in a lifetime.

Shipping News - There is a dirth of shipping news today, and the business of the harbour has been principally confined to the regular passenger and ferry steam boats. The propeller Brantford passed down this morning with a full load. The steamer Huron passed up this morning

with a full cargo. Two schooners passed this port supposed to be bound for Ogdensburgh, names unknown.
