Crew Paid Off.
Only Two Watchman Left On the Steamer Mills.

The Buffalo Courier today says: "Captain Frank Peterson, of Cleveland, owner of the steamers David W. Mills, which is ashore inside Ford shoal near Oswego, was in Buffalo yesterday en route to the scene of the wreck. The Mills is light and, according to reports from Oswego, she is in a bad way and may be a total loss. The crew was taken off in safety Monday night.

"Captain Peterson is the owner of the steamer Lakeland, Laketon, and Lakeport, all of which are going to the coast. The Lakeport has been cut in two at Port Huron and is about ready for her trip to Montreal. Another steamer is also being cut at Port Huron and is expected to be finished by September 15th.

All of the members of the crew of the Mills were paid off at Parsons store yesterday afternoon, except two watchmen, who were left on the boat, which will be abandoned to the underwriters.
