Description
Full Text

The schr. JOHN WESLEY, Orrin Danford, master, was driven into Charlotte by a storm. She was laden with lumber and bound for Pultneyville. The captain reported some of his load lost and he proposed to pay duties on cargo deducting for loss, but finally said he would pay without deduction. This aroused the suspicion of the Collector. The cargo was measured and turned out 27M ft. more than the sworn invoice of the Captain. The vessel and cargo was seized for violation of the revenue laws, and the captain is held to bail in the sum of $2,000 to await further examination.
