SHIPWRECK OF THE OREGON. The fine schooner, Oregon, which was very much admired for her symmetry while she lately lay in Newport Dock, has struck near Bideford. 1 he following is an extract from a letter written by C aptain Rowe-the master—to a gentleman in this town :— „ J Bideford, Dec. 15th, 1845. 'We were shipwrecked near Bideford Bar, on Monday morn- ing last.-The onlv cause that I know of was the attraction of He compass by the iron. We have had an awful time of it— the sea going clean over us for five hours, and we were not able to leave the pumps for the night, the ship striking so, that I ef pected she would go to pteces and now here we are high and dry, and I fear we shall not get off till next springs. The cargo will have to come out, and I expect the ship's keel is broken b1. the look of it—though we can hardly tell what is the matter till she goes into Dock.
