-A telegram from Detroit says the bark Elsworth (sic - Ellesworth ?) is ashore at Athenia. The barks Annie Wright and Alice Richards are ashore on Spectacle Reef and will be totally lost. The crews escaped in small boats. The river is full of floating ice and navigation may be considered closed.

-The schooner Kate Kelley, from Chicago to Oswego with wheat, failed to reach Oswego during the late gale, and drifted down to Kingston. She left here for Oswego on Saturday last, and was near being wrecked by striking the sunken schr. Baltic on entering Oswego harbor. As it is she is slightly injured.
