On Saturday noon the schooner JULIA left port with 7,500 bushels of barley. The cargo was taken on at Gananoque, and belonged to Messrs. Richardson & Sons. Oswego was reached at 9 o’clock. While endeavoring to enter the harbor the schooner struck the middle pier and went down. The cargo is all under water. The grain was insured, and there was $3,000 on the vessel. George Richardson has gone to Oswego, and will have the craft raised. Captains say that Captain Courson was indiscreet in attempting to enter the harbor at night. The only safe entrance can be made in daylight. — Kingston Whig.
