The Schooner Orient

The tug Morey arrived home Saturday afternoon from the scene of the sinking of the schooner Orient. When last seen the schooner was standing on her stern off Stony Point, a portion of her stern and mainmast out of water.

She was "jacketed," (a jacket, in seamen's language is a sail passed under the bottom) and her sinking is attributable to that oversight. There was no insurance on the vessel. It is very probable that the vessel will prove a total loss, but as soon as the storm subsides an effort will be made to raise her if she can be found. The steam pumps of the Orient took to the bottom belonged to J. K. Post. The schooner was not stripped and of course sunk with her entire outfit.
