Full Text

The schooner C.L. BURTON, Captain Monroe, which left our docks yesterday afternoon with a partial cargo of oats, shelled corn, and corn meal, for Lexington, when off the Cedar Point Lighthouse sprung a leak, and had to put about and return to port, where she had arrived just before going down. She sunk in shallow water; but a vigorous application of the punps, and a stoppage of the leak have so far relieved her, that at this writing she is nearly emptied of water, and has risen to her proper level. The cargo is considerably damaged but to what extent is not yet known. - Sandusky Register, 21.
