Sultan (Schooner), aground, 22 Oct 1873

Full Text

Port Hope, Oct. 22 - The schooner SULTAN, Capt. Stalker, in making our harbour early this morning ran into the west pier, owing to a red light shown from a vessel in port, which misled the captain. The schooner struck heavily, and though every exertion was made to save her, it was found impossible to get her clear, and she became a total wreck. The captain and crew, seven in number saved themselves by jumping on the dock. The SULTAN was owned by Mr. John Lydon of Port Hope. He practices a system of insuring his own schooners, and will therefore, not feel the loss of the schooner.
