DISASTER. -- On Saturday last, about 11 o'clock, the small coasting schooner MARY, manned by Anbrose Steketee, two sons, Simon and Cornelius, and a boy as cook, started from Grand Haven for New Buffalo. The schooner capsized off St. Joseph, about half a mile from shore, and all on board were drowned.
The father leaves a widow 63 years of age, upon whom the announcement of the disaster produced such a shock that it is feared she cannot recover. Simon also leaves a widow and child to mourn his loss. They reside at Grand Haven. -- Grand Rapids Eagle.
