p.2 The splendid new schooner, Jane Anne Marsh, built here last winter, Captain James, leaves this evening for Rochester loaded with 10,000 bushels of Wheat and 30,000 feet of Lumber, consigned to J. Williams & Co. This is her first trip. We wish her every success. The schooner Anne Jane Brown left, yesterday, with a cargo of 5,000 bushels of Wheat and 30,000 feet of Lumber consigned to the above firm. The schooner Maid of the Mill, of Port Hope, Capt. Williams, arrived here yesterday from Rochester in ballast. Capt. Wallace brings intelligence of the loss of the schooner Odd Fellow, of Port Hope, which was driven ashore about eighteen miles west of the Genessee River, in the heavy gale of Tuesday last. It is feared she will prove a total wreck. Her cargo consisted chiefly of Plaster. We have not learned the amount of loss likely to be sustained by the proprietors; but we understand it will be considerable. We are informed that the vessel is insured for two-thirds of her value. It is reported that several other vessels are ashore in the same neighborhood; we have not heard the names of any mentioned. During this gale of Tuesday last a number of vessels were compelled to take shelter in our harbour, where they remained in safety throughout one of the most terrific storms that has been witnessed on this lake for several years. We observed among them the new three-masted schooner, Allan Gilmour, the only vessel of the class we remember having seen in our port. She came to her mooring in gallant style. This is her first trip. She was built at Bath, and is being loaded, by Mr. R.N. Waddell, with 2,300 barrels of Flour. [Port Hope Gazette]
