      The schooner JOHN WEEDEN, Capt. James Hand, bound from Oswego to Chicago with a cargo of railroad iron, left the Welland Canal on Wednesday morning at 2 o'clock, and reached Point au Pelee Thursday morning at 7 o'clock, where she let run both anchors. After holding on until last (Friday) night, both chains parted at about fifty fathoms. In
endeavoring to get a reefed mainsail on her, something parted, and the wind getting advantage, split her mainsail from gaff to boom. They then made foresail on her, and arrived here all right with the above exceptions, this morning, about 4 o'clock. Her anchors were both buoyed. - Cleveland Herald.
