WRECK.--The schooner G. S. Willis of Oswego, which was lost in the great gale last November, near Conneaut, Ohio, was raised a few days since, and towed into that harbor. Two watches at $800 in money were found in the cabin. The cargo which consisted of 25,000 bushels of wheat, was entirely spoiled. The body of a dead sailor floated off the wreck on raising it above the water.
A steamboat is to commence running between Milwaukie, Wisconsin Territory, and the mouth of Grand River, Michigan, next spring.
