The Captain and the remainder of the crew, seven in number, were taken from the wreck by Capt. Perkins, of the Schooner Huron, after having remained upon the top gallant yard thirteen hours, and a great portion of the time in the water. She was owned by Messrs. Joy and Webster, of this City, Hubbard & Fields of Ashtabula, and others. Cargo of Salt, belonging to John Booth & W.A. Otis, and of Merchandize owned principally by Clark & Fisk of Ashtabula.
