p.2 Loss of a Toronto Vessel - One Life Lost - Yesterday information was received of the total wreck of the brig Alice Grover, of Toronto, whilst trying to make Cleveland on Sunday night in the storm. A telegraphic despatch says the captain, Dougal Gray, was severely bruised, and the cook drowned - the rest of the crew saved. The Alice Grover discharged a cargo from Georgian Bay last Thursday in Cleveland and left that port on Saturday afternoon with 350 tons of coal, for Toronto; and it is supposed, the storm being too severe, on Sunday, she put back to Cleveland, and missing the entrance, was wrecked. The cook is supposed to be a resident of Toronto, but the name has not been ascertained. The vessel was insured. It is not yet known whether the cargo was. Both belonged to Mr. G.H. Wyatt, of this city. He had just returned home for a day or two after a fortnight's cruise on the gunboat Rescue, now at Windsor, when the unwelcome intelligence arrived. [Globe]
