      DISASTERS. - An Associated Press despatch dated Collingwood, October 22d, says: "The schooner PHOBE CATHARINE, of Picton, loaded with 120 barrels of coal oil for this port, ran ashore between Horse Island and Manitoulin, in the late gale, and is now scuttled. Several hundred barrels of flour have also been washed ashore in this vicinity within the past few days

The Howe Island casualty is likely mistaken for Horse Island ? which is Fitzwilliam Island.
