Mr. Seymour Bennett, owner of the scow P.J. FERRIS, has just returned from Rond Eau. The FERRIS, laden with lumber, was carried over the pier at Rond Eau by a heavy sea, and was sunk. The tug GARNDER has taken up steam pumps, and she will soon be raised and brought to this port. The extent of the damage to her
hull is not known.
