The Maggie Hunter.
The Names of the Crew and the Passenger Lost on the Unfortunate Vessel.
There can no longer be a doubt that the schooner Maggie Hunter foundered off this port last Monday night and carried with her to the bottom of Lake Ontario seven men. Yesterday afternoon the mate of the schooner Marysburg, who had been mate on the Hunter, identified the wheel cover, a box about three feet long and two feet wide placed over the steering gear, as having been on the unfortunate schooner two trips ago. Captain Nixon of the Hunter leaves a wife and six children at Toronto, and Sharp, the mate, leaves a wife and children at Port Credit. One of the sailors was a young man named Walter Post of Ferry Point, near Belleville. He was employed in A. S. Page's saw mill several years and last winter he was married. We are informed by Mrs. Roach, who formerly lived in Belleville, that two of the crew and the passenger boarded with her at her residence, West Bridge street, between Second and Third,. Their names are Thomas and William Martin, (brothers) and John Newman, all of Belleville. The former were sailors and the latter a passenger. They were young men and leave widowed mothers in Belleville.
