Still More Disasters Below - The new brigantine J. Langmuir, of Picton, 150 tons, laden with 7,000 bushels of wheat, and consigned to D.E. Maclean & Co., of Montreal, struck upon a shoal of rocks, while entering the Lachine Canal on Saturday in tow of a steamer. She sunk in a few minutes and now lies near the outer pier, within the mouth of the canal, in 8 1/2' of water, not sufficient to cover her deck, but having lurched heavily, the port rail is at least four feet below the surface. Only 700 bushels have been saved, uninjured, and the rest will be sold. The cargo is insured in the Aetna, and the hull in the Western of England and the Western of Canada.

-The steamer Corinthian discontinues her trips on the 20th instant, between Coburg and Charlotte. As this splendid boat has been sold to the Royal Mail Line, another steamer will replace her next year on her old route.

Vessel Disasters - The schooner Josephine Dresden went ashore between Brown's Pier and St. Joseph, Mich., in the recent gale. A vessel is reported ashore between Death's Door and Bailey's Harbor. The schooner Portland, bound up with a cargo of salt, is ashore in the harbor at False Presque Isle, Lake Huron. She will probably prove a total loss. The schooner Caroline E. Bailey, ashore at Grand Haven, is being stripped of her rigging and outfit. The schooner Wave, which went ashore in the recent gale at Nine Mile Creek, near Oswego, has been stripped of her rigging and abandoned. She was laden with 6,000 bushels wheat, from Wellington Square. About 1,500 bushels have been saved in good condition. The remainder has been sold for about 50 cents per bushel.
