      On Sunday last the bark MARY JANE loaded with corn from Chicago for Prescott, went on the rocks known as "The Sisters," in Lake Ontario, near Brockville, and when last heard from was pretty well filled with water. The tug CALVIN went to her assistance with lighters and may save the vessel. The greater portion of her cargo will be damaged. This vessel is owned in St. Cathrines, is 306 tons burthen, and is 7 years old.
