DANGEROUS DERELICT. - Capt. Sidney Le Beau of the steamer NOTTINGHAM, who reported on Nov. 5 that he sighted what appeared to be a wreck off Fairport, passed the spot again and has made the following report to Capt. J.W. Wescott: "I passed close to it this time. It lies between the Erie and Buffalo courses. The spar is afloat and must be hanging to the wreck, which I think it is. It can be easily located. The bearings on Fairport are S.E. by E 18 miles It lies in 13 fathoms of water."
      Vesselmen think it rather strange that no investigation has been made since the wreck was reported more than two weeks ago. They are unable to throw any light on the identity of the vessel, however.
