      . . . . .

WRECK.---We learn that the schooner FRANK MOORE was dismasted on Lake St. Clair on Saturday last. When discovered there was no one on board, and most of her cargo of lumber was washed overboard. Messrs. Patillo & Grant, of Maidstone, on the Canada shore, had taken charge of the vessel, and what lumber that had drifted ashore. The crew have not, as yet, been heard from, and it is feared they were lost. -------- Detroit Free Press
