      In yesterday's second edition we briefly mentioned that the schrs. COMELY and ELLEN THERESA were disabled at Pt. Abino, the particulars of which are as follows: The COMELY is owned and commanded by Capt. Becker, of Celveland, and was coal laden from this port to Cleveland. She became waterlogged in the heavy weather of Wednesday night and went on the Point. She was kept free for some time, but finally sank. The tug PEREW has gone to her assistance. She was insured. The ELLEN THERESA, Capt. Ryerse a Canadian craft, cleared from this port light on the 12th inst. for Dunnville, and also went on the Point in the blow. The tug O.L. NIMS has gone to her relief.
