p.2 The Hanlan Victory -


A Loss - The schooners British Lion, Eliza Turner and Madeira, ashore at Long Point, Lake Erie, will be total losses.

Fast Sailing - The schooner John T. Mott, Captain Peter Cronley, left Chicago Sept. 14th, with a cargo of grain for Kingston. She was in the Welland Canal three days, three days at Kingston, a day and a half at Oswego, half a day at Fairhaven loading, and three days in the canal on the way up, and arrived back in Chicago on the 9th inst., in the evening, with a full cargo of coal. The captain is very modest about the affair, but the Inter-Ocean claims that such fast sailing time has notpreviously been made by any other sailing craft over the same route.

Ashore - The schooner Madeira ashore on Long Point, will, it is stated, prove a total loss. Her back has been broken.

Passed Through the Canal: Schooners Albacore, blank, Kingston, wheat; Canada, Toledo, do, timber; J.G. McGrath, Detroit, do, do; Daniel Lyons, Chicago, do, do; Lady Dufferin, do, do, do; Helen Pratt, do, do, do; Dauntless, Toledo, do, do, corn;

The Sweden - We are informed that schooner Sweden, which recently run aground above Port Stanley, and from which the young man Donnelly was drowned, will become a total loss. The double misfortune is to be deeply regretted.

The J.H. Breck - This vessel came down Lake Erie in the gale which occassioned so many wrecks, and rode out the storm, as the captain says, "like a major."

The Grain Market - considerable grain shipped to Oswego the past week.
