      . . . . .

      The Oswego Journal says "the brig HENRY WHEATON, with a cargo of wheat,
drifted on to the rocks a little above the light-house today, while she was waiting for
a tow boat to tow her into the harbor. Before she could be pulled off, some fifteen
hundred to two thousand bushels of wheat had to be thrown overboard. The wheat
was insured at Toledo, and the vessel in Oswego, but she is not much damaged."
