Full Text

The schooner HARVE ashore. - The N.E. gale which prevailed here on Thursday last overtook several vessels on their way west, and from the following, furnished us by Messrs. Parsons & Co., it will be perceived that the above schooner has gone ashore at Conneaut.

      Conneaut, Ohio. Friday Oct. 15, 1841
Messrs P.L. Parsons & Co.
      Gent: The schooner HARVE, Capt. Hawlet, bound for the Upper Lakes, in attempting to make the harbor at this place last evening, struck opposite, or just below the mouth of the river, and is now ashore about 30 rods below the piers. Her anchors are out and she lays with her bows to the waves, beating upon the sand. There is now about two and a half feet of water in her hold and she continues to fill, though the captain thinks she is not bilged. Unless the sea runs down during the day, of which there is no prospect her freight will be much damaged. She has on a promiscnous cargo, destined principally for Milwaukee, consisting of, 200 barrels salt from Drew & Delong, to Knerland & Co, of Milwaukee.
141 barrels salt from Davis & Co. to Holton & Goodale, Milwaukee.
Groceries from Wm. Fiske to Holton & Goodale, Milwaukee.
Leather from Rumsey & Howard to Holton & Goodale, Milwaukee.
Iron, Nails and hardware from Samuel Pratt to Holton & Goodell, Milwaukee. 17,000 lbs. Groceries from Potter & Beecher, to D. Butterfield, of Milwaukee.
9,000 lbs. Together with sundry small consignments from Kinne & Co., George Davis & Co. J. Nottingham & Co., and we have 13,000 lbs. of merchandise for J. & L. Ward of Milwaukee.
      The Captain and crew are now ashore where they will remain till the wind abates, when they intend to store the goods, a great portion of which will undoubtedly sustain much damage.
      I am Sir, Your ob't serv't J. R. Wheerler.
