Description
Full Text

A VESSEL SCUTTLED - While the crew of the schooner MARY WILLIAMS were at breakfast Monday morning, says the Cleveland Plaindealer of yesterday, in the cabin, the bulkhead in the forecastle took fire from a stove and the flames commenced spreading rapidly. The schooner was off Rocky River at the time. She was loaded with lumber, and Capt. Gaffet wisely ordered her scuttled. The tug BEMIS was hailed and towed her into port. Her cargo was not insured and the vessel itself can be repaired at small expense.
