      MARINE.---The schooner POLLY THOMPSON, of Kingston, was towed out of Port
Stanley on Tuesday last and proceeded on her voyage. The following day she lost her foremast, bowsprit and jib-boom, with all the sails and rigging attached. Her deck load, consisting of 150 barrels of whiskey was washed overboard. By almost superhuman exertions the captain succeeded in working her into Rondeau, C. W., where she now lies waiting repairs. The cargo under deck is uninjured.
