      WRECKED. - The scow P.J. FERRIS went ashore in the late gale at Rond Eau, C. W., supposed to be a total loss. She is owned by Seymour Bennett, and her hull is insured in Buffalo, in what Company we did not learn.

Mr. Seymour Bennett, owner of the scow P.J. FERRIS, has just returned from Rond Eau. The FERRIS, laden with lumber, was carried over the pier at Rond Eau by a heavy sea, and was sunk. The tug GARNDER has taken up steam pumps, and she will soon be raised and brought to this port. The extent of the damage to her
hull is not known.
