The schooner Brooklyn reached here yesterday from Clayton, light - the first arrival of the season.

Craft are sailing or being towed from their winter quarters to places to load cargoes for the west. A numerous fleet are ready for a start as soon as navigation permits.

Small boats are venturing out in the harbour. There is no pleasure or amusement in sailing or rowing in such weather.

Accident To The Schooner J.J. Hill - The J.J. Hill, with 5,000 bushels of wheat, arrived at Oswego on Tuesday. While she was being towed up to the Reciprocity Elevator, and when alongside of Cook's coal dock, a hole was stove in her larboard bow. As soon as she reached the elevator, the discharge of her cargo was commenced, and some 3,000 bushels were taken out dry. The remainder of her cargo was then shifted so that she careened over on her starboard side, and the leak was stopped temporarily.
