Full Text

The small Schooner CLARA HILL, F.J. Rose, master, was wrecked at the mouth of Big Sandy Creek, at 3:30 o'clock. The schooner is a total loss. She was leaking badly and was covered with ice. Captain Rose says the weather was very thick, with snow squalls, attended by a heavy sea, which caused him to run for this harbor. Failing to make it, he went on the beach. Loss $1,000, no insurance. The men were saved by the life saving crew. -- Oswego Report.
