The Mate of the Lydia Ann. The Rochester Democrat, alluding to the sad fate of the mate of the schooner Lydia Ann, and his son, says: "The death of the two Vances is much regretted in Charlotte. The father was an experienced seaman, having been sailing for 15 or 20 years. Arthur, the son, had been on the lake four or five seasons. They were the only persons on board the Lydia Ann who could claim to be sailors, as the captain and two remaining hands had neither of them been afloat more than two or three seasons. Indeed, it is generally believed that if the schooner had been well handled after young Vance left in the yawl, his life, at least, might have been saved. - The elder Vance left a widow and several young children, we understand.
