Port Dalhousie, Oct. 25. - The Great Lakes & St. Lawrence Transportation Company's steamer, JOHN CRERAR, Capt. A. Cragie, which arrived here, picked up the small schooner ANNIE MINES (sic), coal laden, ten miles off the False Ducks about midnight. The schooner was helpless with the rudder and sails gone. Shortly after the schooner was taken in tow the main mast rolled out and carried a man overboard. The CRERAR stopped and rounded to, and those on board understood the man succeeded in getting aboard the schooner. She towed the dismantled vessel behind the Ducks. Capt. Cragie then learned that the man who went over with the mast was in all probability drowned.
