Full Text

FATE WAS AGAINST HIM:-- It was the Canadian schooner BABINEAU & GAUDRY, laden with coal oil to Europe, which ran on a shoal in the St. Lawrence River, above Alexandria, on Wednesday, and sunk. On coming ashore, the captain was arrested as a foreign debtor, on complaint of H.W. Green, of Oswego, for $400 for canvas furnished to the vessel last year, and he now languishes in a Yankee jail at Watertown, N. Y.
