Globe (Schooner), capsized, 23 May 1839
- Full Text
CAPSIZED.- The Schooner GLOBE, Capt. Rosseter, was capsized by the squall yesterday afternoon, about six miles from this port. She was from Buffalo, and had no freight except a small quantity of pig iron. Her hull was observed from shore just at evening, and the Steamboat FAIRPORT, Capt. Gregory, promptly fired up and went out to take off the crew, supposed to be clinging to the wreck. The had, however, been taken off by the schooner AGNES BARTON. We learn that Capt. Shooks, of the VERMILLION, utterly refused to go out with his boat, though she had steam up, ready to start for Buffalo. The public will judge whose conduct is the more deserving. It is easy to decide which of the officers, like a true sailor, wears his heart on the outside.
The Steamboat DE WITT CLINTON, aided by a schooner, made an unsuccessful effort to right the GLOBE this forenoon, and tow her in. The vessel will probably yet be secured without material damage.
