Dispatch to the Detroit Post and Tribune from Oswego; The schooner RICHARDSON, Captain McKee, with 9,200 bushels of barley from Kingston, mistook the lights and ran hard aground on the west breakwater at 3 P. M. today, and went to pieces in thirty minutes. Her crew was saved, but nothing else. The RICHARDSON was built at Kingston in 1866, rated B 1, was valued at $4,000, and was owned, two-thirds by Richardson, of Kingston, and one-third by her captain. She was insured for $2,000. The barley which formed the cargo was valued at $10,000, and was insured. The light on the east breakwater was put out by the gale, which blew at the rate of twenty-seven miles an hour.
      The schooner MARY EVERETT, light, from Oswego to Toronto, went ashore on the rocks last night. A tug has been sent to her assistance. Her condition is not known. The EVERETT is owned by C. Richardson, of Toronto, was built in 1865, rated B 2, and was valued at $2,500.
