      We learn from the Oswego Times, that the schooner ELMINA, of Sandusky, which
cleared from that port on Thursday, was driven back by the gale on Thursday night, and while entering the harbor with but little canvas spread, she was driven ashore by the current and wind in the east harbor, where she bilged and filled. She had on board a small quantity of salt--was nearly light.
