      PROPELLER J. W. BROOKS, ASHORE. -- We learn by telegraph that the propeller J. W. BROOKS, loaded with flour, &c., for Ogdensburgh, went ashore, on the 26th., in a fog, five miles above Long Point, and the cargo is partially damaged by water.
Vessels have gone to her assistance, and she will probably be got off.

      The propeller J.W. BROOKS, which ran upon the shoals between Long Point and Salmon Point, has been pumped out, raised, and towed into Cape Vincent, where she discharged her cargo, consisting of flour and provisions, considerably damaged by five or six days in the water. She is to go upon the dry dock at Ogdensburg, for repairs.
