      . . . . .

The schooner COQUETTE, Capt. Burchard, which sailed from this port on the
2d, for Buffalo, with a cargo of staves, struck on West Sister Reef on the 3d,
and though she got off, the captain found her in a leaking condition, and
attempted to go into Put-in-Bay for safety and assistance; but, in entering the
latter place, the vessel struck again on Peach Orchard Reef, and partly filled.
The schooner was shortly after got off, and sailed into Put-in-Bay, where she
now remains, waterlogged. A telegraph dispatch informs us that part of the
cargo was lost overboard. The tug ONTARIO has been chartered by Messrs.
Woolsey & Birckhead, to go down and pump the schooner out; also, to tow her
back to Toledo for repairs. - Toledo Blade.
