      The Loss of the Schr. J.P. HALE - This vessel which went ashore yesterday on Ford's Shoals, about four miles up the lake and nearly one mile from shore, will probably be a totl wreck. She has bilged, and it is said that wheat is runnint out of her. It is thought, however, that from 5 to 7,000 bushels can be saved in good condition if the weather is favorable.
      The vessel lays with her larboard side towards shore, and does not draw much more wter than when light. her deck is hogged, mainmst sprung and leans over rudder, main boom and portions of the main riging gone, with main sail, &c. torn to pieces. The Hale was a good, substantial vessel, nearly new, owned by S.J. Holley, of this city. The vessel's cargo and freight list are insured, principally in the Buffalo Mutual.

      The schooner SULTAN, says the Oswego Times, of yesterday, which was driven ashore below the east pier, in the gale of Friday night, has been pumped out by one of the excellent Worthington pumps, belonging to the North Western Insurance Company, so that she was got off and brought into port this forenoon, with a large portion of the
wheat in good condition. The company have purchased two of these powerful machines, which are ready at all times for service at short notice.
