Port Colborne, Nov. 21 - The bark ADRIATIC sunk the schr. CLEOPATRA about 2:00 A.M. on the 20th, about 15 miles above the mouth of Grand River, and about 8 or 10 miles from land. The CLEOPATRA was loaded with about 1,600 bushels of wheat and 500 barrels of flour. I hear there is no insurance. The ADRIATIC landed her crew here yesterday. The ADRIATIC is damaged about $100.
