Full Text

The brig COMMERCE, which was blown over to the Canada shore during the gale a week ago, has been heard from. A telegraphic dispatch was received from the captain yesterday, stating that she had lost all her sails and part of her spars, and was in want of a tug. She was lying within 5 miles of Saugeen, where she came to anchor and rode out the gale. The tug RED ERIC left last night to go to her assistance.
