The Schooner Vickery
The Schooner and Cargo Regarded as a Total Loss

Captain Beauprey of the schooner Watertown and Captain Flemming of the tug Seymour report that they passed the wreck of the schooner Vickery. They say that it is a total loss. The schooner struck on the lighthouse island and swung around, and then slid off into deep water. The wreck lies on the south side of the "Narrows" and went ashore about 10 o'clock Thursday night.

The stern is in the water about 100 feet deep, the mizzen topmast being entirely submerged. By the appearance of the foremast Captain Beaupry thinks the bow is about eighty-five feet under water and that the wreck lies on the bank at an angle of about forty five degrees. The wreck has been abandoned and no wreckers are called for. The Vickery had on board 21,000 bushels of corn for Wiser of Prescott.
