Oswego, Nov. 16. - The schooner FLORA EMMA, Capt. Thomas Fox, of Port Hope, Ont., with 144,000 feet of lumber, broke from her moorings in the outer harbor during the terrible gale last night, and went ashore near the shore end of the east breakwater. The crew were rescued by the life-savers.
      The tug ELIZA BEDFORD went out into the storm to save a vessel. She labored heavily, burst a steam pipe and drifted helplessly ashore alongside the schooner. Captain Featherstonhaugh of the tug was washed overboard and drowned. Both tug and vessel are a total loss.
