      The schr. W.A. GLOVER, bound from Hamilton to Montreal with a cargo of grain, went ashore on Friday night off Light House Pt., during the heavy gale of that night. her cargo consisted of 2,500 bu. wheat, and between 8,000 and 9,000 bu. peas. The vessel burst in several places from the swelling of the grain and will, it is thought, prove a total loss. No effort was made on Saturday forenoon to save the cargo, owing to the continuance of the high wind, but in the afternoon parties went to work vigorously and worked all night. Nearly the whole cargo was saved, though, of course, in a damaged condition. The cargo was insured in the Security Company, of New York, for about $9,000
