"The schooner Acadia which was sunk by a collision off Little Sodus on Saturday evening (8th) was owned by Rae & Brothers, Hamilton, C. W. , and was loaded with about 6,000 bushels of wheat, from Bayfield, Lake Huron, bound for Oswego. In going down, the main mast of the Acadia caught on the jib-boom of the Latham, which vessel sustained the immense weight of the Ocadian and her cargo for several moments, in that position, until relieved by the giving way of her jib-boom, bowsprit, and foretop-mast. The bow of the Latham was drawn under water, while her keel at the stern was raised ten or twelve feet out of the water. -Osw. Pal. "
