LOST OVERBOARD.
      The schooner F.M. KNAPP came into port yesterday with the news that James Lynn, one of the sailors, had been lost overboard off Point Pelee during a gale Captain Leish had ordered him and some other men out to reef the foresail. Lynn lost his footing and fell over the side. The sea was too high to admit of an attempt at rescue.
      Lynn was 35 years old. He lived at Hickory and North Division Streets in this city and had a wife and a number of grown-up children.
