p.2 On Monday evening after dark a Schooner laden with lumber from Oakville for Lewiston, when about 3 miles from this port, was completely waterlogged in a tremendous gale of wind: the rudder was quite unmanageable, and the crew (five in number) were for two hours standing up to their breasts in water, whilst the heavy waves were continually breaking over their heads. Providentially the Schooner drifted towards our Harbour, and struck on the bar, whence the crew were rescued in the Boat of Mr. Andrew Heron Junr., who hearing the cries of the men had gallantly put off to render assistance. Part of the deck lading was lost, but we are glad to hear the disaster extended no further. On Tuesday morning the Schooner was found aground on our shore. [Niagara Reporter]
