p.2 Schooner Sunk - Yesterday evening as the steam tug William was about to tow the schooner Rapid down the river, the engine was ordered to be reversed, when it was unfortunately put ahead, and the tug ran into the schooner with some force, from the effects of which the Rapid immediately began to sink. As the accident happened near the upper end of the harbor, the schooner was run into the slip at the wharf of the Marine Railway, where she now lies, sunk, but in shoal water, her bow being high and dry. The Rapid was owned by Captain Harbottle, and had been engaged during the summer in carrying stone to Prescott for the new Parliament Buildings at Ottawa. She was laden, at the time of the accident, with a cargo of stone from Cleveland for the above destination.
