      . . . . .

      The schooner HURRICANE, owned by W.A. Fox & Co., of this city, went ashore at Gravelly Bay, in the tremendous north-easter of Tuesday night.
The schooner E.M. LYON, owned by R.T. Lyon, of Cleveland, went ashore during the same gale, about two miles from the HURRICANE. She is loaded with wheat. We understand she is insured in the Buffalo Mutual and North Western Companies, but to what amount we were unable to learn. The tug ECHO and a lake boat left to her assistance this morning.

The E.M. LYON came in yesterday afternoon. She had on over 5,000 bushels of wheat for oswego, 3,000 bushels of which are in a damaged state.

The Plain Dealer says that much of the cargo of the schooner LYON, ashore at Gravelly Bay, is damaged.
