      LOSS OF THE LYDIA MAC
      She Goes Down Off Port Stanley
A dispatch has been received by Mr. Axworthy from Captain M. Berry, of the scow LYDIA MAC. stating that his vessel sprung a leak and sunk Saturday night, within 20 miles of Port Stanley. It is presumed all hands were saved, as no mention was made of loss of life. She had 165 tons of coal for Port Stanley, shipped by Thomas Axworthy. Her cargo was valued at $560, and insured in the Manhattan for that amount. The vessel was valued at $2,500, but her insurance, if any, could not be learned. -- Cleveland Leader.
