p.3 Accounts from Queenston state, that the greater part of the valuable cargo of the schooner Owen was shipped on the 25th ultimo., on board the Packet Richmond, of York. A few articles were totally lost. - What has been saved is of course very much damaged, as the packages remained three days in the water. It is gratifying to learn, that the seamen left in charge of the wreck, behaved with the most exemplary care and fidelity, though two of the poor fellows have their feet very badly frozen. The error in the Owen's course, was probably occasioned by a quantity of iron, which lay on her deck, and which must have caused some attraction of the magnetic needle.
