Full Text

We learn from Capt. Ransom, of the YOUNG AMARANTH, who rode out the severe gale of Saturday last off Black River, that the stm. PIONEER and schr. PHOEBE are badly ashore at Grand River. The schrs. MERCATOR, NEPTUNE, PRUDENCE and WILLIAM are ashore at Cleveland and had not been heard of when he left; the MINERVA slipped her cable and had returned to Cleveland.

      The schooners MINERVA and GEN. HUNTINGTON, which in addition to those mentioned in our last, were lying at anchor at this place, when the late storm commenced, put to sea, and nothing was heard from the latter unti; Monday morning, and serious apprehensions were entertained that she had capsized and gone to the bottom. The Erie paper of Saturday states, that she was driven on the beach, about ten milers above that place. She was partially freighted with ashes, the principal part of which, it is said, will be lost. The MINERVA gallently rode out the gale, and has since sailed for Detroit.
