NOTE: The above Oswego vessel is probably the one ashore near Kingston in 1857, however since she is listed in 1860, is is likely she was got off ????

Marine News - The schooner Hudson, Capt. Wilson, with a cargo of lumber from the Bay of Quinte for Oswego, went ashore at the Gap, Sunday night. The tug Morgan went to her assistance.

The Gale - Marine Disasters - The wind commenced blowing very fiercely last night from the N.W., accompanied by hail and snow at intervals, and a gale of great severity is seldom witnessed on this lake. Several accidents have occurred to vessels in the harbor, and fears are entertained for the safety of those which were supposed to be on the lake.
The schooner Hudson, which went ashore at the Cape, above Kingston, a few days since, will, we understand, prove a total loss.
