Nearly Wrecked - Yesterday the schooner Forest Queen, which started for Oswego, had not proceeded over half a mile when the master of the schooner discovered that she had sprung a leak, and was fast settling in deep water. He at once despatched a crew for the tug H.M. Mixer, who promptly put out to the assistance of the sinking vessel and succeeded in bringing the schooner to the shallow water, near the island, where at present she is discharging her cargo. But for the exertions made by the crew of the H.M. Mixer, the Forest Queen would have sunk. [Toronto Telegraph]
