Miscellaneous Notices.

Ship Atlas.-The ship Atlas, lately arrived, while laying at anchor, on the 21st inst., abreast Hog River, about seven o'clock in the evening, suddenly sprung a leak, which overcame all efforts to keep the ship free. The pilot determined, at once to save the lives of the crew, and the cargo, to run the ship on shore: the cable was accordingly slipped, and the ship ran up the creek. After running a considerable distance she grounded, and when the accounts came away at midnight she was laying with three fathoms amidships, and two and a quarter fathoms forward and aft —and the water was up to the hatches of the lower deck.—[Cal. John Bull, Sept. 24.
