Wreck of the Schooner "Twilight"
The small scow schooner Twilight, owned by Capt. Ouderkirk, and used chiefly for transporting wood, was lost last Tuesday night, about fifteen miles east of the mouth of the Genesee River. She was bound from Sodus to Charlotte, where her owner resides, loaded with wood, and when about five miles from there she sprung a leak, the wind blowing fresh from the westward.
Capt. Foster, seeing that it was impossible to make port, bore up and ran down the lake. he threw over her deck load, but the water gained rapidly on the pumps, and was soon over her deck, when she capsized and sunk, all the crew but the captain going into the lake.
Capt. Foster jumped into the water and swam to the small boat, which had got adrift, and which was not their only hope. he finally succeeded in taking off the crew, who were clinging to parts of the rigging. The Twilight was about fifteen miles from shore, and after rowing for about twelve hours the crew was picked up by the propeller J.L. Tucker, Capt. Soper, and brought to Rochester. The crew saved nothing from the vessel.
