Full Text

The Chicago Tribune, of the 14th,. says the schooner SANDUSKY, owned by C.M. Reed, of Erie, and commanded by Capt. Mosler, reached that port Saturday, disabled. She was struck by lightning at the mouth of Carp River, by which her mainmast was shivered, the lightning passing off at the pump. No one was hurt, the crew being ashore cutting wood. She loaded with lumber and came up with a double reefed stay-sail; but before reaching port, she had her top-mast carried away in a squall.
