Full Text

We learn from Maj. J.B. Campbell that a young man named C.D. Cassells was lost overboard from the schooner OCEAN, on the evening of the 25th. inst, during the passage of that vessel from Eagle harbor to Isle Royale. A sudden flaw of wind it seems struck the boat, which shifted the boom so suddenly as to strike Mr. C., and precipitate him in the lake. Every exertion was made to save him, all efforts were in vain. Mr. Cassells was about 30 years of age, was formerly from N. Y. -- Lake Superior News
