Private dispatches from Port Colborne to vessel broker J.L. Crosthwaite state that Capt. Hayes of the barge OGARITA was lost overboard off Port Stanley yesterday.
      Port Colborne, May 20. - Steamer SEGUIN reports that when off Port Stanley yesterday, Capt. Robert Hayes of the OGARITA, which was in tow of the SEGUIN, went forward to fix something around the jib-boom and fell overboard and was drowned. Every effort was made to save him, and a small boat was near him when he went down for the last time. A heavy sea was running. Capt. Hayes was well known around the lakes, having been an old canaler. He was about 60 years old and resided in Buffalo. SEGUIN and OGARITA arrived here this morning on their way from Duluth to Kingston with wheat.
