Released from Amherst Island and brought here for repairs

The Steamer Hastings, of Kingston, arrived here last night with the schooner Typo, an Grantham in tow. The former, a fine large Milwaukee schooner, was wrecked on Amherst island, while on her way down the lake with a cargo of wheat. The Grantham brought over a portion of her cargo. The Typo was rescued by the Donnelly brothers of Kingston. It takes the two large steam pumps to keep her afloat. She is badly "humped" and twisted, but her sails rigging and spars are all right. The extent to which her bottom is damaged cannot be ascertained until she is placed upon the dry dock, but it is probable there are one or two bad holes. She will be relieved of the balance of her cargo, which is wet and will then be placed upon the dock and repaired.

There are in port at present three crafts that have been partially wrecked and brought here for repairs. The propeller Prussia, wrecked in the St. Lawrence, the schooner Sarepta, stranded at Fair Haven, and the Typo wrecked at Amherst Island.
