SCHOONER G. G. HOUGHTON ASHORE.
The schooner GEORGE G. HOUGHTON, a Milwaukee built vessel of the old Welland Canal type now owned by William H. Marsh of Oswego, ran ashore Thursday night on the point at Cape Vincent. She had on board 24,000 bushels of corn from Toledo for Ogdensburg. The vessel is supposed to have suffered but little damage, and an early release is expected.

      OLD CANALLER HOUGHTON JUST SAVED BY JETTISONING 30 TONS OF ORE.
Kingston, Ont., October 25. -- The schooner G. G. HOUGHTON, laden with iron, from Escanaba, (two lines unreadable) had a narrow escape from foundering while coming down Lake Ontario. The vessel got into the trough of the sea and was unmanageable until 30 tons of her cargo had been thrown overboard. She is now at Prescott discharging her cargo, and is leaking badly.
