      . . . . .

The schooner ISLAND QUEEN is reported ashore near Sodus.

      Monday, December 11, 1854

      . . . . .

      We understand that the steam tugs J.E. MULFORD and N. ROBINS, of Oswego,
took off the schooner ISLAND QUEEN, laden with coal, from near Sodus, and towed
her safely to Oswego, though leaking badly.--------Rochester Union
The schooner ISLAND QUEEN, which went ashore in the late storm, between Sodus
and Genesee, has been pulled off by the Oswego tug boats and has arrived safe in
our harbor. She is apparently little damaged, but her salt and part of her coal
have been thrown overboard. The tug boats have gone after the barque AMERICA
and she will doubtless be brought into port soon.-------Oswego Journal
