The schooner ERIE, Capt. Standish, from Black Rock, for this port, with 30,000 dollars worth of merchandise, owned in part by Messrs. Howards and Mr. Kent of Middlebury, Mr. Kent of Ravenna, Mr. Baldwin of Hudson, and others, came to anchor in the offing, on Wednesday the 22 ult. A heavy blow soon after commenced, which increased to a gale in the evening, and having dragged her anchors, at nine o'clock struck on the sand some five rods from shore. The schooner filling with water, the hands were compelled to remain on deck till the gale subsided the next morning, during which time the sea made a constant breach over her. She has since been discharged, got off, and into the river. The damage to the cargo and vessel is about $10,000

The vessel filled with water before any articles could be taken out, and it was supposed that the losses sustained by different individuals would be $10,000. -- Painesville Telegraph.
