Full Text

The schooner ZEPHYR, Napier master, from Ashtabula to Sandusky, with a quantity of goods and salt, was driven on shore near the Pennsylvania and Ohio line, with the loss of every soul on board, amounting to 10 or 12 persons, the crew and passengers.
      The body of a female was found upon the shore of one of the islands, which was the only discovery that had been made of the remains of those unfortunate persons, who had thus suddenly been whelmed in the abyss of destruction. Hats, bonnets, &c., had floated ashore. --- Niagara Patriot of Oct. 24.
