. . . . .
The schooner H.E. MUSSEY, owned by C. Dickinson, of this city, bound from Kingston for this port, with a cargo of railroad iron, for A.N. Gray, went ashore in a fog on the 24th. ult., at the "Devil's Nose," south shore of lake Ontario, but was got off, and arrived here this morning. She was obliged to throw overboard 260 bars of iron; they can, however, be readily recovered, as they lie in shallow water. The needle was so varied by the attractive power of the iron as to mislead the Captain, who supposed, just before the vessel struck, that he was near the north shore. The schooner was somewhat strained, and will have to go into dry dock for repairs. ----- Cleveland Herald
