Cleveland, July 18. -- A telegram from Ashtabula states that the large schooner VERONA was run into and sunk just outside the harbor this morning by the large propeller CAMBRIA. A heavy northeast gale was blowing, and the VERONA drifted across the CAMBRIA's bow. No lives were lost. The schooner SUPERIOR is hard aground near Fairport. Her crew have not yet been rescued, but there is no immediate danger to their safety.

      Cleveland, Sept. 17. -- The steamer VIENNA sunk off Whitefish Point was owned in the Orient Line of M. A. Hanna & Co. This is the third boat of the Orient Line, which was composed of three steamers and three tow barges, sunk by collision within a year. The first two barges, VERONA and HELENA, were raised, but abandoned to the underwriters as total losses. The HELENA was raised and sold to Wolf of Milwaukee, and Gilchrist of Vermillion bought the wreck of the VERONA. The VIENNA was fully insured and the owners are probably satisfied to let her go as long as the crew escaped. All the boats of the line were for sale last winter.
