p.2 Accident at Oswego - Some of the shipping in this port has suffered from the violence of the gale. The brig Manhattan, belonging, we believe, at Detroit, is beached near the place where the wrecks occurred last fall - on the rocks within the East pier. The schooner Scotland and Moses have shared a similar fate. These vessels were all moored within the harbor, but were broken loose by the force of the storm and driven ashore. [Oswego Advertiser Feb. 5th]

p.3 Erratum - In the last Argus, in copying Capt. Fowell's letter to Mr. Baird, the number of revolutions of the Mohawk before she was fitted with the sweeping paddle wheels, should have been printed 34, instead of 24.
