Port Hope, Nov. 6 - The schr. A.J. McBRIER, loaded with lath and bound from Alpena to Sandusky, stranded last night during the westerly gale 4 miles west of this place. The Pt. au Barques life-saving crew went to her in response to the signals of distress and took off the captain and his family and the crew, 10 persons in all, and brought them here this morning. The schooner may be saved if the gale does not shift to the northwest. The vessel is owned by her captain, J. Jones, and is not insured. The cargo of lath was owned by Bennett Bros. of Sandusky and insured.
