The following members of the crew of the schr. Watertown, ashore at Bear Creek, arrived here last evening: Joseph Devan, S. Tyo, C. Chambers and E. Mullen. The captain and mate remained at the wreck to superintend the stripping of the vessel. The crew state that that she is a total wreck. They all speak in the highest terms of Capt. C. Beaupre for the way he tried to save the vessel.

James Stenson, sailor, is sueing the captain of the schr. America for wages. He shipped at Toronto for Fairhaven at $30 for the round trip. The men understood that there was a return load awaiting the vessel. Instead of that she was compelled to lay at the dock for 16 days. The men asked to be reimbursed for the delay but were refused. They made over their claims to Stenson who entered the suit. The defendant alleges that the men signed for the round trip for $30, and are not entitled to more. The men hold that a "round trip" is a trip that should be made in the ordinary time.
