PASSED DOWN. -- The bark ONEONTA, recently ashore, passed Detroit on Sunday on her way to Buffalo. Although she was on the rocks several days and pounded heavily, the chief damage sustained was to her rudder and stern post, and one pump has kept her free. A small portion of her cargo was lightered, or jettisoned, but what remains will be delivered in good condition.
