      THE SCHOONER CAROLINE MARSH LOST NEAR OSWEGO.
      Oswego, N. Y., Nov. 4. - The schooners ALBACORE and CAROLINE MARSH, which left the harbor yesterday morning, coal laden for Toronto, tried to put back after a clearing. The ALBACORE arrived safely, but the MARSH could not get back. She was assisted by the tug CUMMINGS, and when off Beacon Light the line parted, and before another line could be made fast, she drifted upon the rocks at the life-saving station. The Life-saving crew rescued the crew of the MARSH, but the MARSH went to pieces on the rocks.
