The sloop W.T. SHERMAN, Captain Godfrey, which left Cape Vincent Thursday night for Oswego, with a cargo of barley for Irwin & Sloan, sunk at about 11 o'clock Friday morning in deep water off Four Mile Point. Her topmast is out of water. The captain and crew reached shore in a small boat. It appears that the leak was caused by the sloop runing into some stakes near Point Peninsula, which had been set by fishermen to buoy their nets. The vessel was owned by Captain Godfrey and Albert Stewart, of Sackett's Harbor, valued at $1,200. Neither craft or cargo was insured.
