The WINGS OF THE MORNING, loaded with staves, has broke in tow. The MARION EGAN, loaded with barley, is on the sand, the grain is all safe yet, and it is thought she will be got off,

      BROKE IN TWO. -- The Clerk of the propeller ELMIRA reports that the schooner WINGS OF THE MORNING, which went ashore at Port Colborne during the late gale, has probably broken in two, Mr. S says that at a distance her stern appears to rise and fall with the waves, while the bow appears to be hard on, leaving no doubt in the minds of those on the propeller, that the schooner had broke her back. -- Cleveland Herald.
