Prop East Aground - A telegram from Gananoque, dated yesterday, says the propeller East ran on a shoal in the middle of the channel opposite there last evening. They are lightening her into the sloop Gull, and expect to get her off this evening. She is leaking. The damage will be light.

Breck, Toledo, timber; Florida, Chicago, corn; bark Arctic, Cleveland, coal; Annie Medway (sic - Medbury?), Chicago, wheat; G.I. Wren, Milwaukie, wheat; Valentine, Toledo, corn.

The propeller Ocean, in entering the harbour on Sunday afternoon, touched on the shoal opposite the wharf of the Canadian Engine and Machinery Works. If it has become so dangerous to shipping as some represent, it would be well to have a buoy placed in the vicinity of the rock without delay.

Two schooners the Newcastle and an unknown vessel, are reported ashore in the Bay of Quinte, the former near Stone Mills, and the latter at the Cove. The schooner Shannon ran down the Bay in the same gale with her foremast broken.

The schooner Augusta Ford, grain laden, grounded on the shoal off Point Frederick on Saturday morning. She was taken off without much injury by the tugs H.M. Mixer and Lady Franklin.

-It is reported that a collision took place in Lake St. Peter on Tuesday between the steamer Caspian and the barque Phrenologist. The latter sustained slight damage to her rigging. Both vessels were obliged to anchor owing to the fog.
