A VETERAN CRAFT GONE - During a freshet which occurred at Fairport, Ohio, a few days since, the schooner CITIZEN, which laid up at that port, broke from her moorings, and before she could be recovered she came in contact with timbers and other refuse material, which caused her to sink and break up. She was probably the oldest craft on the lakes, having been built by John Richards, at Erie, in 1835, and was consequently thirty-eight years old. She was 142 tons burden, and twice underwent large repairs. For many years she was sailed by Capt. Wm. Bone, who also owned her. Recently she was owned by Capt. John Stewart, of this city.
