A dispatch from Cornwall says the schooner MAGGIE, of Hamilton, laden with wheat, broke loose from her tug last night when at the entrance to Cornwall Canal, and ran the north channel of the Long Sault, striking hard several times in her descent. She is now hard aground two miles above Cornwall on Crab Island, with five feet of water in her hold.

      . . . . .

The schr. MAGGIE bound from Chicago for Montreal with a cargo of 18,906 bu. wheat, shipped by J.H. Milne & Co., of Chicago, is ashore near Crab Island, below Kingston, and is said to have 7 ft. of water in her hold. The insurance on the cargo is in the Chicago Grain Insurance Pool, the risk being taken by the following Companies: St. Paul Fire & Marine, $10,400; Orient Mutual, $5,200; Buffalo of Buffalo, $5,200; Total cargo insurance $20,800. A despatch received here from Capt. John McKenna, Marine Inspector for the insurance companies holding risks on her, say about 700 bushels of her cargo can be saved dry, and
the vessel does not appear to be in as bad shape as at first supposed.
