Full Text

Some time during last night Captain John Reed of the schooner JOHN BREDEN mysteriously disapperared. His outer garments, money, &c., were found safe on the boat. The vessel moored at the dock in Buffalo River. He was seen last night on the dock in good spirits and all right. The mate said he came aboard about 11:00. His wife left him a few days since and returned to their home in Chicago. Search was made for the body in the water, and about 11:00 this morning the diver brought it up near the bow of the vessel.
