CAPSIZED. - Schooner CONVOY, from Muskegon, Capt. G. Foster while entering St. Joseph harbor, on Sunday last, broached to on the bar and was struck with a squall of wind, and capsized in an instant. There were but three on board, the Captain, Wm. S. Foster, and Augustus Rattle, a lad about 13 years of age. The yawl and the boy went overboard, and both were covered up with the main sail. Capt. Baldwin, of the MARIA HILLARD, and Capt. Miller of the schooner LIBERTY, being in port, proceeded with their crews and yawls to their assistance, and succeeded in saving
them. The boy when rescued was nearly exhausted. The CONVOY lay upon the beach, bottom upward, south of the piers. She may be got off without much damage.
