Full Text

We learn from Capt. Munson of the brig EMIGRANT, that this fine vessel is ashore, near Avon Point, with 6 ft. of water in her hold. She had a full cargo of iron from this port, which is supposed to be considerably damaged. It was partially insured. The brig is owned by Messrs. Pease & Allen, of this city. - Cleveland Plain Dealer.

We learn from Capt. Titus, of the steamer BUFFALO, that the propeller GOLIATH, bound down with a cargo of 9000 bushels of wheat and 1000 barrels of flour, sprung a leak on Tuesday night last, between Cleveland and Sandusky. The flour was immediately thrown overboard and Captain Esterbrook, finding that the leak was gaining on them at every heavy sea she encountered, headed her towards Black River and ran her ashore on the rocks near the point where the brig EMIGRANT was lost. The GOLIATH is owned by Truesdale & Co., of Detroit, and we understand that both vessel and cargo are insured in the North Western Insurance Company.
