VESSEL AND CREW LOST. - The Schooner GLEANER, of Ohio City, Capt. Case, with a crew of three men, left this port on the 28th. Sept, with a cargo of corn, for Kingston, U.C., from the office of C. McDonald & Co., since which time nothing has been heard of her. She has undoubtedly foundered, and all her crew lost.

The wreck of the schooner GLEANER, lost last fall, with a load of corn for the lower lake, has been discovered in the vicinity of Gravelly Bay. The GLEANER was a good vessel, commanded by Capt. Case, an experienced laker. She went down in a gale with all on board, and until this spring no memento to mark the last resting place of her unfortunate navigators had appeared. - Cleveland Herald
The hull of the HELEN MAR, another of the vessels lost last fall, has also been discovered somewhere in the same vicinity. As in all other cases, none of the crew survived - all went down with the vessel.
