-The steamer George Moffat was got off the rocks at Long Point on Monday night, and was brought down here yesterday. She now lies at Hatter's Bay, for the owners have allowed her to remain under water for a few days, until the weather moderates, as they intend afterwards sending down to the Marine Railway for repairs. The Oshawa has all gone to pieces, and is, of course, a total wreck at South Bay.
