The prop. Bay State, of the N. T. Line arrived her this morning, having made the first round trip to Lake Ontario ports this season. From Capt. Brown we learn that the prop. Jefferson went ashore at Long Point during the dense fog on Friday morning last, but was lighted off, and proceed on her way. When some seven miles above the canal, she again went ashore at a place called Morgan Point, and was compelled to throw overboard a greater poriton of her deck load, after which she floated off. The principal part of the jettisoned cargo was picked up, and she proceeded on her voyage.

Capt. Brown also informs us that an unknown schooner ran into the propeller Wisconsin, near the lower end of the Welland Canal, knocking down her smoke stack, shifting her boiler, and doing other damage. The W. will probably haul off for repairs. - Toledo Blade, 23rd
