      . . . . .

VESSEL SUNK. - The report which we gave two days since of the loss of the
brig FLORA is confirmed by the arrival of the Captain at this port. The FLORA
was bound for this port with a cargo of coal, and in a dense fog ran on a rock
13 miles north of Kewaunee, and instantly sunk in ten feet of water. The
Captain is endeavoring to obtain a vessel to go to her relief. She is owned by
Crawford and Price and insured in that city.

from a trip to the wreck of the brig FLORA on Saturday, bringing down her rigging,
anchore, &c. The RSSETTER has been abroad on the trip about 13 days.
