BARQUE ASHORE.---The Oswego Journal say a telegraph dispatch, received here last evening, reports the barque ARABIA ashore at Sodus, supposed to have gone on Sunday night. She had a cargo of something over 13,000 bushels wheat from Milwaukee. Tug boats and lighters were immediately despatched to her relief, and it is believed the vessel and cargo may be saved with little damage, both of which are insured.

The Oswego Journal states that the brig ARABIA which went ashore at Sodus on Sunday night was pulled off yesterday, we believe, without damage to either cargo or vessel. The ARABIA has arrived here, and we learn she hove some two or three thousand bushels of her wheat before the tug boats and the lighter reached her.
