Broke Loose On The Lake.

The sailors of the schooner Two Brothers, which arrived in port at daylight this morning, report that a tow of freight boats separated near the Main Ducks during the night. The course of the Two Brothers led her some distance from the Ducks, but the lights of the steamer could be seen moving about, as though she was endeavoring to pick up her drifting consorts. It is thought the tow was bound for Ogdensburg. The tug Walker was at Oswego yesterday with three barges for coal, but it is not certain that she left for here.

p.6 General Paragraphs - The propeller Cuba, while passing through the canal at Morrisburg, on Wednesday night, struck her wheel on the bank, breaking off one blade. The mishap was not serious enough to delay her, and she passed up by here this morning, en route for Hamilton.
