      November 22, 1869

The schooner St. PETER, which cleared from this port for Cleveland, Friday evening last with a cargo of 6,700 bu. wheat, ran foul of some obstructions near the West Sister, causing her to leak so much that the master was compelled to run her ashore on the nearest land, which was Green Island, where she now lies on her side in 25 feet of water. Vessel and cargo are a total loss. The vessel's outfit will probably be saved or at least a part of it.
