Schooner Wrecked. - About 11 o'clock on Sunday night, the Canadian schooner Christiana, while entering the harbor, carried away her gaftt-topsail and parted her main throat halyards, and becoming unmanageable thereby, was carried against the West pier. A strong wind was blowing from the East, and a heavy sea running, which carried the vessel ashore about twenty rods west of the Lighthouse, where she went to pieces in a few moments.

She had on a cargo of 2,000 bushels of barley, from Picton, C.W., consigned to P. Hyland, which is a total loss. The Christiana was owned and commanded by Capt. Wm. Patterson, on whom the loss will fall severe, as there was no insurance. The crew all escaped by jumping upon the pier when the vessel first struck.
