Description
Full Text

Run Down.--The Steamer GREAT WESTERN ran down the Schooner COMMERCIAL last night off Conneaut. The COMMERCIAL was beating up the lake laden with salt, and was struck about mid-ships by the WESTERN and sunk. The crew of the schooner were taken off by the WESTERN. By some means the lights on the schooner were obscured, so that she was not observed from the WESTERN until too late to avoid the collision.
