The schr. American is ashore at Point Peninsula. She is loaded with grain for Sackett's Harbour.
The schooner Mary Fox, which has been dismantled in Picton harbour for a year or two, was sold by auction last Saturday, and purchased by Messrs. Curry & Reynolds. She will be rebuilt this winter at Redmond's shipyard. [Picton Times]
The schr. White Oak, Captain Dix, arrived last night at Swift's dock with 360 tons of coal. The White Oak left Oswego yesterday morning for Kingston, and had a very rough passage down the lake. She lost three jibs and fore gaff topsail, besides her jibboom. Capt. Dix reports having spent the roughest time he ever experienced on the water. The men were considerably scared, and tried the pumps several times, expecting that the vessel had been strained by the gale, but she was as taut as she could be.
