On Thursday last, the schr. HANNAH, Capt. Robinson of Dover, U.C. arrived at this place with the crew and passengers of the schr. BREAD, Anderson, of Sandusky, which was wrecked off Long Pt., during the gale of the 7th inst. She struck on a bar in the night, about a mile from shore, where they remained in a most perilous situation until daylight, when one of the men swam ashore with a rope, by the assistance of which the passengers in all 34, were taken off the wreck. The cargo consisted of salt, the passengers' baggage was lost. Rigging partially saved. The accident occurred in consequence of the compass being unshipped in the blow.
