      A dispatch from Rodney, Ont., says: The schooner ALMEDA of Buffalo, Captain Michael Carr, went ashore at Port Glasgow Thursday night. She was partially loaded with the same cargo that was abandoned by the schooner LEWIS ROSS, the vessel that went ashore at the same place three weeks ago. The captain thinks she will be a total wreck, as her back is broken now and nearly every plank in her has started. The crew are all safe.
