THE SCHOONER CORSICAN ASHORE. - Saturday afternoon Captain Brown of the schooner Corsican, telegraphed Mr. A.F. Smith that the schooner was ashore twenty-one miles above Port Maitland, Lake Erie, but gave no particulars. Mr. Smith started immediately for the scene of the disaster, to see what assistance was necessary to relieve the vessel, but up to this time has not advised Captain Morgan, insurance agent, of the damage. The Corsican was bound from Ogdensburg to Cleveland with a cargo of iron ore, and probably left the canal Friday with the rest of the fleet, but when she encountered the westerly gale ran back as far as the point stated, when she went on during the snow storm. The schooner is owned by A.F. Smith and Captain Brown, and is insured for but $10,000, about $4,000 less than her value.
