      A SAILOR DROWNED. - A man by the name of Angus Shaw, the mate of the schooner W.G. GRANT, now in this port, was drowned from the vessel on Sunday morning, at 7:30 o'clock, while off Point aux Barques. With the jibing of the mainsail he was caught in the main sheet, which threw him overboard some distance from the vessel. The boat was immediately lowered away, and every effort made to save him, but he sunk before he could be reached. He resides in Cleveland, and leaves a wife to mourn his untimely fate.
