Description
Full Text

A dispatch from Erie to her owner, in this city, reports the schr. S.J. HOLLEY sunk at that port, laden with a cargo of coal. After receiving her load on board and starting on her voyage in tow of a tug, she struck an impediment which caused her to leak rapidly and was in consequence towed back into the harbor, when reaching the dock she immediately went down. She belonged to Wm. Stewart, of this city who has left for the scene of disaster, and will without doubt have her got up at once. As regards her insurance we are in no way
advised.
