Full Text

It is denied that Capt. Ewart, who ran the schr. VIENNA on the beach at Nut Island, Lake Ontario, has disappeared, being unwilling to face the disgrace of losing three boats in two years. It is stated that he was at Charlotte, the nearest port to the wreck, and has been in constant communication with the agent of the underwriter in Detroit. The VIENNA is full of water, and the stern is badly damaged, but with favorable weather it is claimed that she will be released.
