Full Text

The schooner ANOWAN, Capt. Braney, in entering Oswego harbor night before last, at about 11 o'clock, was driven against the west pier, by the North-easterly wind and sea, and after pounding for several minutes, filled and drifted up the river. Her starboard bow is badly shattered, but the extent of damage is not yet ascertained. Her cargo consists of lumber, the deck load of which was lost overboard. The vessel is owned by Capt. Braney, and is not insured.
