The schooner Acacia (Capt. Simmons) from Oswego to Kingston with coal for Swift & Co., drifted on Nine Mile Point, early this morning, being unable to help herself, there being scarcely enough wind to carry her along. The Calvin tug Frontenac went up to pull her off. It is understood that she is but lightly on.

The schooner was very easily pulled off, and arrived at Swift's wharf at half-past nine o'clock in tow.
