By dispatches received yesterday, we learn that the schr. MEDORA, with wheat from Yates for Irwin & Sloan of this city, is ashore at the mouth of the Niagara River, on the Canada side, with 2 1/2 ft. of water in her hold. Lighters were alongside of her, and it was thought she would come off when the cargo was discharged. Her pumps could not keep her clear. - Oswego Times.
