Full Text

On Wednesday, 11th inst. the schr. SUPERIOR, Sherwood, went ashore on Cedar Point, she was laden principally with merchandise for this place and Detroit, and had a number of passengers on board. The passengers have been landed at this place, as have also the goods consigned here; the goods for Detroit, are on board the schr. GOOD INTENT, on their way to that place, but the vessel, yet remains stranded. We have been informed that she is not injured. In attempting to enter the harbor she ran aground, and in this situation a squall struck her, and blew with great violence. Both anchors were carried out, and every exertion made to heave her off, but the gale continuing to increase, rendered that impossible, and left no alternative but to slip her cables and run her hard aground. - Sandusky Clarion
