THE WRECKED SCHOONER VIRGINIA - The scow L.B. Goldsmith arrived yesterday from the schooner Virginia, wrecked with a cargo of corn on a reef at the upper end of Lake Erie, as reported in our last issue.* She brought with her 4,000 bu. of corn, 2,500 bu. of which is dry. The Goldsmith left the Virginia Sunday evening at 9 o'clock, at which time she had five feet of water in her, and with the present state of the weather she would without doubt go to pieces. Her taffrail had already worked loose and her deck beams had given away from her clamps. The tug Red Eric was yet there rendering all possible aid which could be under the circumstances.
