Description
Full Text

We regret to learn that the American steamer EMPIRE, Capt. Allen, struck a rock near Farran's Point on her upward trip on the Sabbath morning last, and shortly afterwards sunk, or run ashore in shallow water, close by the place of the accident. No damage was sustained by the passengers or cargo; and means, we understand, are being used to repair the damage and float the vessel with all possible despatch.-----Cornwall Freeholder
