SCHOONER CALVIN SNELL SUNK. - We learn that the schooner CALVIN SNELL, which was ashore lately at Presqu'Isle, ran down to Kingston. Discharged her cargo of wheat, and loaded with ballast. On her way West on Lake Ontario, she suddenly sprung a leak during a heavy blow, and went to the bottom in deep water. The crew escaped in
the boats. - Cleveland Herald.
