Two Masts Showing
Of the Ill-Fated Schooner Oliver Mowat.

Two of the three masts of the ill-fated schooner Oliver Mowat, projecting from the water at a point t5wo miles this side of the Main Duck islands, mark the scene of the disaster that occurred last Thursday night when the steamer Key West rammed the vessel admidships, causint it to sink, carryhing with it three members of the crew, including its master, Captain Thomas VanDusen.

Such was the report brought here today by Captain Clinton Daryaw, of Picton, who arrived here early this morning in the schooner Mary A. Daryaw. The trip across was made around the foot of the Main Ducks and not around the head, where the Mowat was sunk. Captain Daryaw picked up his information in Kingston, which is agog with the particulars of the accident.

Besides Captain VanDusen, First Mate Jacob Gurley, of Deseronto, and Carrioe McGulgan, the stewardness, were drowned. The name of the stewardess appears on the records of the custom house here, where the boat was last cleared.
