p.2 Schooner Wellington - We regret to learn that considerable apprehension exists regarding the fate of this vessel. She was owned by Mr. F.W. Mandeville, and had on board 3500 bushels of wheat belonging to A. McFaul, Esq. A few hours previous to the storm on Saturday last, she was seen off Long Point, within a few hours run of Kingston, and has not since been heard of. It is feared she has gone down with all on board. [Prince Edward Gazette]
