Full Text

MARINE. - A gale from the south-west sprung up last night about half past five and continued without abatement until aboutten o'clock this morning when it began to lull. The brig AMAZON loaded with flour and corn in attempting to enter port drifted onto the beach a few rods west of the north pier, and when we left her the sea was dashing over her decks. The vessel, however, is not thought to be in immiment danger, and will be got off after lightering. The three masted schooner ROUGH AND READY struck the South pier in entering port and afterward drifted on to the north pier. She was finally extrcated from her position, through the efforts of Capt. Dorr, of the Buffalo Mutual Insurance Co. The AMAZON is owned by Mr. Scott of Cleveland, and there is no insurrance on her.
      P.M. The schooner MARION loaded with flour and corn ran onto an anchor near the end of the pier, and sunk near Dart's Elevator. A portion of the cargo is insurred.
