Ashore. - The schooner Caroline, which left this port a day or two ago for Coburg, was overtaken by a heavy northwester and had to return. In attempting to enter the harbor yesterday afternoon, in the blow, she failed, and got ashore below the east pier. She lay tolerably easy last night, and hopes were entertained of getting her off without much damage.

Another Arrival. - The Propeller St. Nicholas, Capt. Wm. Williams, arrived at this port yesterday morning from Toronto, with a cargo of 3,010 barrels of flour, and 100 bags of peas, consigned to Messrs. Clemow & Bloore. We learn from Mr. Bloore, who came over in the St. Nicholas, that she left Toronto Tuesday forenoon and that little or no ice was encountered in the passage. he also stated that the Propeller Oshawa was to sail for this port yesterday or today with a cargo of 2,500 barrels of flour; and also that many vessels at different ports on the Canada side are ready and will sail the first fair weather for Oswego, with cargoes of wheat, flour, &c.

Lake Freights. - We learn that parties in this city have offered to take wheat, from Chicago to Oswego, the first trip, at 22 cents, on the opening of navigation.
