      . . . . .

The schooner N.G. was towed into Port Burwell, by a steamer on Monday, having
been entirely disabled in the gale which prevailed on the lake, on Saturday and
Sunday. Her masts were gone clean to her deck, and when fallen in by the
steamer, she was perfectly beyond control.

      . . . . .

The steamer BRUCE MINE, which arrived yesterday morning, fell in with a
wrecked schooner, off Port Burwell, with her masts overboard, and her sails and
rigging gone, lying completely at the mercy of the wind and waves. The steamer
towed her into port, and she proved to be the N.G., a lumber vessel, trading
between Canada and Buffalo, and carried a crew of six men, who were all saved.
