      . . . . .

      ON THE NORTH PIER BREAKWATER. - The schooners JASON PARKER and BERMUDA, the former laden with wheat and the latter with corn, in endeavoring to
enter the harbor, after the sinking of the barge St. LAWRENCE, grounded on the
breakwater. The PARKER sprung a leak and sunk. The BERMUDA is hard on the
breakwater, but had made no water up to last evening. Two tugs were engaged most of
the day, trying to haul her off, but without success. She will be lightered off today, and
if the weather continues calm, she will not be much damaged.

The schooner JASON PARKER, also arrived from Erie. The J. P. it will be remembered, went on the breakwater at Buffalo last fall and received serious injury; this has been repaired, and the vessel is now as good as new.
