MISSING FROM OSWEGO.
Oswego, Nov. 12th - Captain Densmore of No. 12 Dorcas street, owner of the schooner Cornelia, has not been heard from since he left here five weeks ago to sail the boat to upper lake ports. He intended to purchase a barge, but did not, and the crew losing trace of him, brought the Cornelia back to this port.
It is feared that the captain may have met death in the waters of the lake. Attempts have been made to locate the missing man at upper lake ports, but the search has been without results. The Cornelia is now across the lake with coal, being sailed by James Oliver.
Capt. Densmore, owner of the schooner Cornelia, is now, in all probability, at home again. He has been in the city for some time, but left for home on Wednesday.

Brockville, Nov. 12th - A petition is being circulated in Brockville and along the river front asking the dominion government to buoy the Canadian channel of the River St. Lawrence between Brockville and Rockport, a distance of about thirty miles. It is pointed out that several dangerous shoals require lights to aid those navigating the channel after dark. Several gasoline launches came to grief on these rocks the past summer.
