Kingston, Oct. 6. - The captain of the schooner ANNANDALE, who landed his boat on Charity Shoal, Lake Ontario, has secured affidavits that the Pierson Island Light did not revolve. He will ask the Dominion Government to pay him damages. High winds kept wreckers away, and the schooner may break up.

      SCHOONER "ANNANDALE" IS A TOTAL LOSS. - Kingston, Oct. 7th. - The steamer DONNELLY has been at last able to reach the schooner ANNANDALE, from Oswego for Kingston with coal, which is ashore on Charity Shoal, but the vessel proved to be too far gone to be released. The heavy seas pounding upon her for the past three days, have left her in a shaky condition, and there seems no hope of saving her. Her cargo of coal likely will be loaded into the lighter GRANTHAM and the vessel stripped.
