Buffalo, June 9, 1859
      BRIG OLEANDER - This vessel is on the rocks, 15 miles below Point aux Barque. The locality is known as one of the worst on the coast, and the probability is that she will go to pieces. She is an old vessel, worth about $3,000, and is owned by Hitchcock and others, Buffalo.

BRIG OLEANDER - The tug OSWEGO arrived this afternoon with the brig OLEANDER lately ashore near Point au Barques, Lake Huron. The brig, at the time of going on, was partially loaded with lumber, having some 80,000 feet on board, which was all taken off with lighters. After pumping out she was got off without difficulty, and towed down. She leaks freely, but beyond that does not appear to be seriously damaged. This, however, can only be ascertained after getting her into dry dock. - Detroit Free Press
