ACCIDENT TO THE SCHOONER J.J. HILL. - The schooner J.J. HILL, with about 5,000 bu wheat from Lewiston for Howlett, Lathrop & Co., and C. Ames & Co., arrived here yesterday P. M. While she was being towed up to the Reciprocity Elevator, and when alongside of Cook's coal dock, a hole was stove in her larboard bow. As soon as she reached the elevator, the discharge of her cargo was commenced and some 3,000 bu were taken out dry. The remainder of her cargo was then shifted so that she careened over on her starboard side, and the leak was stopped temporarily. - Oswego Times.
