p.2 Sunk Near Oswego - A short telegraphic despatch, received by parties here last evening, briefly announces the loss of the schooner William John, which sank a few miles off Oswego, where her cargo, probably lumber, was destined. Her crew were safely picked up by the schooner Centurion (Captain Tyo of Kingston). These are the only particulars we have been able to ascertain relative to the accident.


Montreal Transportation Company's wharf - The propeller Lewis Shickluna, from Chicago, lightened 5,000 bushels of wheat and proceeded to Montreal; the schooner Cavalier, from Milwaukee, 18,000 bushels of wheat; and St. Lawrence, from Chicago, with 20,101 bushels of wheat, arrived yesterday. The Fanny Campbell and Southampton sailed for Chicago with salt.

The schooner Richardson, which left on Saturday for Oswego with barley, returned yesterday, and is again loading 9,000 bushels at Richardson's warehouse for the same destination.

The steamer Louisa, from Ottawa, arrived and departed today.

The steam barge Lincoln and barge Lisgar in tow passed up from Montreal last night.

The propeller City of London loaded a quantity of pig iron, and left for the west this morning.

The Maud - The steamer Maud is again on her regular route (Bay of Quinte), having had her paddle-wheels repaired with but little delay. The kind she is now using is the common straight wheel; but during the winter she will have replaced the style she first tried - the feather paddle-wheel.
