p.2 Supposed Loss of the Propeller J.W. Brooks With All On Board - (Oswego, November 10th) - It is supposed that the propeller J.W. Brooks, from Lake Erie to Ogdensburgh with a full cargo, was lost on Lake Ontario during the late gale, with all on board. A hurricane deck, supposed to be from the Brooks, came ashore at Henderson's on Friday morning, and the steamer Bay State, arrived yesterday, reports seeing a lot of flour and lard floating between Sacketts Harbour and Kingston. A sofa was picked up in the lake by the schooner E. Masters, supposed to be from the Brooks. The crew consisted of twenty men, and probably some passengers.

The schr. Somerset, from down the Lake, reports three children, furniture, etc., picked up on the beach at Stoney Creek, supposed to have belonged to the ill-fated propeller J.W. Brooks.
