Toronto - Between 9 and 10 o'clock yesterday morning, the fist-bottomed scow JENNY JONES, laden with lumber from Toronto to Port Dalhousie, and owned and commanded by Captain Curphey, filled with water during the gale that swept over the lake during the forenoon, and drifted on to the Island near the western point. The Captain and two men who were on board got into the rigging, and were taken ashore by a boat that came up soon after. No great damage was done and it is expected the scow will float as soon as the lumber is taken out of her, which will not take more than a few hours.
