BUFFALO ITEMS. - A dispatch dated Buffalo, Oct. 23d, says: The largest number of vessels that ever came into this port arrived to-day. The advance guard reached here last evening, and all night long and this morning continued to come, one after the other as close as safety would permit. The harbor from its mouth to the foot of Main street is lined with large sail craft, lying three abreast, while from the breakwater as far as the eye could reach they could be seen coming before a sharp, favorable wind. It is safe to say seventy-five grain vessels reached this port since 8 o'clock last evening, having on board wheat, bushels 1,100,000; corn, 800,000; oats, 220,000; barley, 110,000; rye, 60,000; total, 2,295,000.

This morning as the schooner Annie Vought was coming into port she ran into the side of the schooner Palms, crushing her to the water's edge.
