Andes (Schooner), sunk, 1 Oct 1868

Full Text

The schr. ANDES of Detroit, which sailed from this port on Friday last, with a cargo of 16,000 bu. wheat, for Buffalo, sprung a leak off Madison, Ohio, on Saturday, and almost immediately sunk in deep water, and will prove a total loss. The crew were all saved. The ANDES was built at Toledo in 1847, and was formerly a brig, but in consequence of getting dismasted some two years since was fitted out into a fore and aft schooner. Not long ago she underwent a thorough rebuild and was considered a staunch vessel, measuring 268 tons, old style. She was owned by Capt. J.B. Scott, of this city, who, within the past few years has lost no less than 4 vessels in the same locality. She was insured but to what extent we are not informed.
