      . . . . .

      SCHOONER WRECKED.---We learn by a telegraphic dispatch from St. Catharines, that the schooner AURORA went ashore, waterlogged, near Port Dalhousie, 12 miles west of the Niagara River, on Lake Ontario, on Thursday night. The AURORA was from Lake Erie, with a cargo of lumber for Capt. Rogers of this city. The lumber was to be used by Capt. Rogers in constructing a vessel down the river. We do not learn the present condition of the schooner, but presume she will be got off. -- Rochester Union
