Marine Accidents

The schooner Paragon, while going in at the Queen's wharf, Toronto, on Sunday night, owing to the low state of the water, grounded, and getting off became unmanageable. Striking the wharf, her head gear was carried away and her anchor broken in three places. One of her stanchions was stove in. Total damage about $150.

The barque D.M. Foster, of Toronto, ran into Port Dalhousie pier, cutting into it five feet. She has started everything forward - She is bound up the Welland Canal, loaded with lumber. Damage estimated at $300.

The Oswego Times says the schooner Queen of the Bay, bound from Thorold for that port with a cargo of boat timber, is ashore about 16 miles up the lake. She has lost a spar, and the probability is that she will go to pieces. The schooner Meteor, from Port Hope, with a cargo of 375,000 shingles for same port, went ashore about 4 miles up the lake. She carried away her foresail and fore-boom. It is thought that she can be got off.

The schooner Republic is sunk at Old Mackinaw; the bark Invincible is sunk at Mackinaw, and the schooner Essex is on Wanbaschance (sic) Reef.

The schooner Gold Hunter, from Milwaukee with wheat, is ashore at Point au Pelee Island. Her situation is extremely perilous.
