Barque NORMAN. - The large three masted schooner, noticed by the Rochester
American a few days since, as being in distress during the gale a week ago
Saturday, and put into the Genesee, proves to be the barque NORMAN, Capt.
Redfield. The NORMAN cleared from Oswego for Chicago, but in the gale she
sprung a leak, while off Charlotte, and put into that port for safety. She there
discharged her cargo of merchandise and arrived in Oswego (says the Times on
Saturday evening. The vessel is now on the Marine Railway undergoing repairs
after which she will again clear for her destination.
