Description
Full Text

Some time since the owners of the barque LUTHER WRIGHT discharged her Captain
J.B. Osier, and succeeded him by Capt. Loyd. About a week ago Capt. Osier went aboard the vessel while lying at her dock in this city, and having put ashore her captain, dropped down the Creek and took her to the Canada shore, somewhere below Waterloo. The steamer WISCONSIN proceeded out last night and towed the LUTHER WRIGHT into this port. When Osier saw that those in command of the WISCONSIN were determined to take her, he jumped ashore on the Canada side, as the vesel was leaving the dock.
