p.2 News was received in town by telegraph on Friday evening, that the steam-propeller Oliver Cromwell, Captain R. Patterson, owned in this city, was sunk in the Straits of Mackinac by a collision with another vessel. The Captain and crew were saved. The Cromwell was on her way to this port from Chicago with a cargo of flour and wheat, on which there was an insurance in the Western Assurance Company of Toronto to the amount of 1,500 pounds. Capt. Patterson, who was part owner, we learn had insured 1,000 pounds on his share of the vessel. Messrs. Walker & Berry, and Mr. Wm. Anglin, joint owners, we understand are not protected.
