      LOSS OF THE STEAMER CLINTON. - The steamer CLINTON belonging to the Ontario Steamboat Company, was lost in a gale on Saturday evening. The CLINTON was chartered by Mr. Belden of this city for freight and towing. She left here on Saturday morning with a couple of scows in tow for Braddock's Bay, 12 miles west of the mouth of the river. While lying at that place a gale came on from the north east which she could not make head against. In attempting to get out with one scow in tow, she beached and was soon a total wreck. The two scows were also lost. No lives lost. The vessel was insured. - Rochester Times.
