Damage To a Schooner - The schooner Wave, from Oswego, which arrived here yesterday, encountered severe weather on her up trip. When off Toronto, in a gale, she lost the entire of her canvas, and was otherwise slightly damaged. Her damages are estimated at $400. [Ham. Spect.]

Vessel Accidents - A painful accident occurred on board the barque Orion as she was leaving Kingston on Tuesday last. A large block fell from the rigging, striking Capt. Peace and one of the crew, severely injuring the latter, insomuch that it was deemed advisable to have him conveyed to the Kingston hospital. The captain escaped with a cut on the face.

On Monday last, at Coburg, one of the hands employed on board the schooner George Washington, was seriously injured by being struck on the head by a piece of iron ore as he was coming up from the hold of the vessel. Medical assistance was obtained and the wounds dressed, and in the evening he was brought by the steamer to Kingston and removed to his family, who reside on Amherst Island.
