A dispatch from Kingston, Ont., says the Canadian schooner FABIOLA foundered in Lake Ontario near the False Ducks yesterday morning. The crew escaped in their yawl boat, and landed at McDonald's Cove. The FABIOLA was loaded with a cargo of coal for James Swift and Company of Kingston, and left Charlotte Saturday. There was a high wind and much sea, and when about five miles out she sprung a leak. The crew worked hard at the pumps, but the vessel foundered in spite of their efforts. The schooner was owned by Capt. Bates, her master, and was thirty years old. She had a tonnage of 147, and measured 100 feet in length and 22 feet beam. Both vessel and cargo were uninsured.
