The schr. GLENAVON, while anchored at Leamington taking on a cargo of staves, a few days since, shipped some heavy seas through her hatchways during a storm, and almost immediately sunk, and will probably become a total loss. The vessel has been dismantled. No lives were lost. Neither vessel or cargo were insured. The GLENAVON was formerly the schr. UTICA, and originally came out in 1848. She is 195 tons burden, and hails from Hamilton.
