CECILIA bound from Cleveland to Port Stanley with a cargo of block stone, sprung a leak about 15 miles out from this port, Thursday evening. The captain tried to make Fairport, but before he could reach the piers his vessel became waterlogged, and she was beached just east of the piers. The schooner is owned at St. Cathrines and is commanded by Capt. Coleman.
