      . . . . .

THE TRANSPORT. - The outfit of this vessel has been saved, while the vessel has become a total wreck. She came out in 1858, and was first owned by Walter Joy, Esq., of Buffalo, and was built here by F.N. Jones.

      . . . . .

The schooner TRANSPORT which ran on Blue Ledge and was run ashore at Richmondville is now at this port a worthless wreck, loaded with lumber and lath and full of water. Her owner, Mr. Gage of Silver Creek, intends to have a survey made of her and will doubtless abandon her to the Underwriters, after securing the lumber from her hold and the lath from her deckload.
