The schooner LUTHER WRIGHT, which we stated on Saturday morning, had gone ashore at Gravelly Bay, was we since learn, loaded with corn from Toledo to Kingston for Miller's Distillery. The schooner is owned by Capt. Bain who sails her and Bain's brother of this city and was insured for $4,000. Assistance was sent her on Saturday.
Her cargo will probably be got out, though in a damaged state.
