Full Text

Toledo, June 29. - The captain of the steambarge W.B. HALL, that arrived Monday night, reports that on Sunday morning at 11 o'clock, five miles west by south from Cove Island, the schooner GRACE AMELIA was sighted, waterlogged, with the mate, a sailor, and the cook on deck. The captain of the schooner, Buckley, was in a small boat trying to reach Southampton. The captain of the HALL went to him and offered assistance, but no agreement was reached, and the HALL sailed away for Toledo. It is thought that the captain of the AMELIA expected to reach Southampton, and secure the services of a tug to take her in tow. The GRACE AMELIA has on a cargo of ties from Mitchell's Bay for Windsor. The weather was bad after the HALL left, and it is feared the schooner is lost.
