The schr. DAN MARBLE sprung a leak and sunk yesterday morning 9 miles east of Long Pt., in about 25 fathoms of water. The crew took to the yawl boat and were picked up by the schr. MONTBLANC and landed at Long Pt., from which they were taken to Port Colborne by the schr. DARLING. The DAN MARBLE was one of the oldest vessels on the lakes having been built in the year 1848 by J. Tyler at Conneaut, Ohio. She was repaired in the year 1873, and at the time of her sinking was valued at $3,000 and classed B2. She was owned by S.V. Parsons and Capt. Louis Talbot, and was sailed by the latter. The vessel was partially insured in the Aetna Co. She cleared from this port yesterday with 300 tons of coal destined for Detroit..
