      . . . . .

      The following schooners are ashore on the Canada side near Gravelly Bay: INDIANA, loaded with salt, a total wreck; MISSISSIPPI, Capt. Raymond, for Kingston, loaded with flour and pork, a total wreck; OHIO, Capt. Robertson, loading light; M. KINGMAN, high and dry, will probably be got off; and the brig F. MILLS and the schooner E.
