The schooner Sanderson, from Chicago to Oswego, with a load of wheat, went ashore on Tuesday night near Smoke's Creek. Captain Davison, Inspector Board of Underwriters, with the tug Underwriter, went to her yesterday, jettisoned a portion of her cargo, got her off, and brought her into port without any apparent damage to the vessel.

The schooner Europa still remains where she went ashore on Tuesday night. Captain Dorr is at work on her with lighters, and will save her cargo probably in a damaged condition.

The schooner Mazeppa still remains on the Erie Basin Breakwater. She is full of water, and has to be pumped out before she can be removed. She had on 15,000 bushels of wheat, which is all wet. Her cargo was fully insured. It is thought she may be got off. Work will be resumed on her today.

The schooner L. Shickaluna is ashore six or seven miles west of Port Colborne. She has a cargo of wheat from Milwaukie for Oswego. She lies in about six feet of water.

The bark David Morris, Capt. Vader, with 16,425 bushels wheat from Chicago to this port, went ashore on Tuesday night at Point Abino, on the west side. She commenced leaking as soon as she struck, and filled to water-level. The captain came to this city for assistance, and the tug L.L. Britton went to her aid. Her cargo is fully insured.

A letter from Port Burwell to Messrs. Bagnall and Dobbins, states that 140 bbls. flour, 1 bbl. whisky, and several barrels of apples, had been picked up near that place.
