      The schooner L. SHICKLUNA, bound from Hamilton to Oswego, with lumber, put into the Genesee River Sunday in a disabled condition. She lost her foresail, fore-gaff-topsail, jib-topsail, three lines, and about 12,000 feet of her deck load, and had six feet of water in her hold. After pumping her out she proceeded to Oswego under main sail and staysail. She will go into dry dock for repairs.
