A DISASTER
      The Sandusky Register of Saturday morning says that during the storm on Friday a scow, supposed to be the ROYCE, was caught in the gale just off Ottawa City and capsized. During the afternoon a steamer sped near where the scow was floating, and from all appearances all on board were lost. She was lying on her side and pounding around in the heavy sea with pieces of wood floating near. The steamer was unable to get near her on account of the heavy sea.
