JUMPED OVERBOARD.---Capt. John Ryan of the schooner NAVIGATOR was coming up on the LOUISIANA, yesterday, when about 11 o'clock A. M. he jumped overboard just
forward of the wheel and was not seen afterwards. The engine was stopped, a yawl boat lowered and a search made for two hours without finding him. He was probably struck by the wheel and immediately sunk. It is said he was laboring under an attack of delirium tremens. ---------Cleveland Plain Dealer
