Vessel Sunk Off Little Sodus

We learn by private despatch that the schooner Etta Belle, coal laden, from Fair Haven to Toronto, sunk last night when about eight miles off from Little Sodus. The crew was saved, but how the despatch does not state.

The lake was calm last night, and the men probably took to the yawl when they found the vessel sinking, and rowed ashore. The Etta Belle was a small schooner, of 94 tons register, and was owned by Hillaker & Wells, of Dexter. She was rebuilt at Dexter in 1871 from the bottom of the old schooner Champion, and was valued at $4,500. Whether there was any insurance we have not learned, neither the cause of the accident.
