Distressing Occurrence. -- On Sunday night last, the Sch. Caroline, Capt. Tyler, owned by J. T. Trowbridge & Co. of this village, sailed from this port for Ogdensburgh, laden with a valuable Cargo of Merchandize to the amount of some $30 or $40,000. When about 20 miles out, a sudden flaw of wind struck the vessel and she capsized, and Mr. James B. Thompson, a clerk of Messrs. Trowbridge & Co. and son of James Thompson of this village, a worthy young man of about eighteen years of age, we regret to state, was drowned. The crew were all saved in the small boat, in which, after being out about six hours they gained the Duck Islands where they remained until Monday evening , Dec. 3, when they were taken off by the Schr. Richard M. of Sacket's Harbor. We understand the Caroline has since been found and taken in tow by the Richard M. and will be taken to Cape Vincent.
