The QUEENSTON on her passage up took off all NIAGARA's passengers and their baggage but could not render her any assistance and left her Friday morning on her beam ends in 5 feet of water and 60 tons of merchandise on board.

      STEAM BOAT NIAGARA. -- We regret to learn, that this vessel still remains on the shoal off Poplar Point. The engine was taken out of her some days ago, and active preparations are now making to have her removed to some favorable situation on Poplar Point, where it is intended to haul her up for the winter. She lies at present in about three feet water.
