Nixon, of Toronto, measuring 12,500 bushels, and valued at $10,000, coal laden, is reported to have gone down, with all hands, during a passage from Oswego to this city. She was owned by Mr. Samuel Hunter, coal and wood merchant, and was uninsured. She left Oswego on Monday, and is supposed to have foundered during a violent storm. The owner has received a telegram, saying that part of her cabin has been washed ashore near Oswego. The mate's name was Sharpe. The names of the rest of the crew are not known.
