The propeller Dromedary arrived yesterday afternoon, and remained over until today. She is destined for Hamilton to go into winter quarters.

The propeller Bruno is unloading at Messrs. Swift and Co.'s wharf, prior to laying up at Portsmouth.

The propeller Bristol also touched on her way west.

Last night the barge Lark (Messrs. Holcomb & Stewart's) broke from her fastenings, and drifted on the bar off Pt. Frederick, where she was still hard aground today the sea breaking over her.

The schr. J.G. McGrath is unloading her cargo of 350 tons of pig iron at Swift's.

The steamer Hiram A. Calvin reached here yesterday from off Long Point, where she was endeavouring to clear the steamer York, ashore near that place. Contrary winds prevented the unsuccessful (sic) operations of the wreckers, and the Calvin left for this port with the balance of the York's deck cargo, which she has discharged with that of the Annie Falconer at Swift's, and will return to the York so soon as circumstances permit.

Burned - The steamer Reynolds was burned at Bay City on Wednesday morning. Loss $25,000.

Lost - One woman and five men were lost by the wreck of the schooner Jennie & Annie. Two sailors named Wm. Haven and James Albright were killed at Detroit by falling from the yard of the schooner Nicholson.

The Akron remains hard and fast on the bar this morning. [Ogdensburg Journal]

Abandoned - The schr. Russell Dart, ashore above Port Maitland, has been stripped and abandoned by her owner.

On Saturday the schr. Sea Bird sailed for Cape Vincent grain laden, but as she passed the shoal off the Canadian Engine and Machinery Works her anchor struck and stove a hole in her bow. She at once commenced to leak so badly that her captain ran her ashore in the channel between Wolfe and Garden Islands. Her cargo will be for the most part damaged.

Port Colborne, Dec. 2nd - Down - Run back on Sunday - Schrs. J.E. Gilmore, Melrose.

Run back today - Schrs. White Cloud, Amoskeag, J.R. Gibbs, barque John Breden.

About sixty vessels, here to winter, are laying two deep between here and Stone Bridge. They have commenced to move them further down the canal to enable propellers to pass up.
