      . . . . .

At about 8 o'clock last evening, a large brig attempted to make the harbor, but missed and went ashore some fifty rods below the north pier, inside the Erie Basin. A small boat, badly stove, was washed ashore near the Brig, bearing the name JAMES McBRIDE on it's stern - and supposed to belong to the vessel.

The brig JAMES McBRIDE attempted to come into port after dark but was carried ashore inside the Erie Basin upon the sand beach, where she now lies. She will probably be got off with small damages.
