Counsellor H.C. Benedict left Oswego for Syracuse yesterday, where he appeals in United States court before Judge Wallace on behalf of Captain J. Pappa and engineer Geo. Cuzzene, owner of the tug C.P. Morey, defendants in an action brought against them by Benjamin Barney of Kingston. The suit was brought for the recovery of the value of the schooner Sweet Home by Mr. Barney her owner. The Sweet Home was lost below the East pier, the line with which she was being towed into port by the Morey having parted when inside the piers, but the vessel ran out on the beach with a cargo of lumber and proved a total loss. She was valued at about $2,000. Testimony taken by U.S. Commissioner Getty during the summer will be submitted in court. Several Canadian witnesses and witnesses on behalf of the defendants also left for Syracuse yesterday.
