      . . . . .

The schooner GARDEN CITY and the brig BOSTON were carried down with the ice to Black Rock, and a tug was to have gone after them last evening.
Since the above was in type, we learn that the GARDEN CITY went ashore near Black Rock, and was exposed to the ice running in the river, and it was feared that she would sustain considerable injury.

      . . . . .

The schooner GARDEN CITY which was carried down the river by the ice on Saturday
last, was lighted of part of her cargo on Monday, and was got off on Wednesday and taken
down to Tonawanda to discharge the balance. She has sustained no injury.
