Hayes (Scow), struck bridge & sunk, 21 Apr 1862

Full Text

Information is received here from a captain of a scow which came through the bridge at 1:00 yesterday, that the scow HAYES loaded with gypsum, for Cleveland in passing the bridge just behind him got entangled in the bridge and sank in the channel. Her jibboom caught in the timbers of the bridge, carrying away her bowsprit, when she careened so that her spars struck the bridge when she went down, righting as she sank. Such are the fact as reported here. We understand that she lies in the left hand channel going up. - Sandusky Register, 22nd.
