p.2 Wreck of the Schooner Christina - The vessel driven in shore near Wellington by the late gale, proves to be the Christina, of Port Sarnia, Capt. W. Lang. The body discovered attached to the rigging was taken away by the people of Hillier, and buried in a neighboring Grave Yard, early this week. Next day a near relative of the Captain came up from Kingston, and thinking he might recognize the dead person, had the body disenterred, which after some consideration, he said was that of the unfortunate captain. No traces of the remainder of the crew have been found. The vessel lies dismasted & her deck load washed off, but strange to say that although driven in shore, she has not been beached. She has been ere this, or is to be towed into Kingston Harbor by the steamer Charlevoix, sent up for that purpose.
