Wrecks Discovered - Capt. D. Chapin, of New York, gives notice in the Erie Gazette that he has discovered the wreck of the Young Lion, laden with rail road iron bound for the State of Michigan, and also the exact location of the steamer Erie. He states that the discoveries were made by the aid of a compass of his own invention. The Lion he says lies off the mouth of Walnut Creek, and the Erie six miles from Silver Creek light-house, and about 4 1/2 miles from Cataraugus pier. He has placed buoys upon the wrecks, and forbids interference as he intends to raise them as soon as the weather and season permits. - Cleve. Her.
