Full Text

The schr. W.H. DAVY, of Bath, C. W., bound for Goderich from Cleveland with a cargo of coal, sprung a leak during the gale last Saturday, 2 miles west of Middle Island, Lake Erie, and sunk. The captain and crew had a narrow escape from drowning. They clung to the rigging from 6:30 in the evening, at which time the vessel sunk, until near noon on Sunday, when they were fortunately rescued by the tug T. WHITNEY. The schooner is 4 years old, and registers 226 tons. It is thought she can be raised.
