Full Text

SHIPWRECK. - The Hamilton steamer as she was on her downward trip to Toronto, on the 9th inst. fell in with the schooner RAMBLER, water-logged and in a ruined condition; the crew clung to the masts. The steamer succeeded in rescuing the unfortunate men, who, for several hours, had remained in a most perilous situation. The schooner was from Niagara in ballast, and was towed into Toronto. - Another small craft was driven on shore near Wellington Beach, total wreck - the crew saved with much exertion. The schooner AMELIA was slightly injured, though she weathered the gale at anchor in Port Credit. Much wood was washed from the wharves on Friday evening along the Canada shore. - Rochester Daily Advertiser.
