From the Buffalo Commercial of Saturday

Propellor and Brig Ashore.-- By letters received in town to-day per Constitution, we learn that the propeller Emigrant, with a cargo of 9000 bushels of wheat, from Chicago, for this port, is ashore at Goderich, C. W. Part of her crew came down to Detroit in the steamer Red Jacket, which had been despatched to her relief. A portion only of the cargo is damaged. It also appears tha the brig Alert, Capt. Scovall, of this port [Buffalo], is ashore South of Point Wabashanks. The Alert was bound to Chicago with 80 tons of merchandize and 20 passengers, taken from the schooner Cuba, of oswego, which went into Cleveland a few days since in a leaky condition of the Alert, but as she is a strong built new vessel, it is presumed she will be got off without much injury.
