      . . . . .

The schooner ROSCOE, bound up the river, light, to Erie, during Tuesday night,
was driven ashore between this port and Black Rock. The scow schooner GEORGE
NEVILLE was also driven on the the beach below the harbor, early yesterday
morning, and we understand she filled and sunk. She had on no cargo, and will be
easily got off.

      . . . . .

The schooner ROSCOE and scow GEORGE NEVILLE got ashore yesterday on the
beach between this city and Black Rock. Both vessels were light. The former was
hauled off by the tug UNDERWRITER without sustaining material damage, but the
latter filled and sunk. She lies in an easy position however, and will probably be got
into port without difficulty.
