The O.M. Bond Ashore and Sunk.

Mr. J.H. McCollum received a despatch this morning from Capt. S. Lefevre of the Oswego schooner O.M. Bond, dated Sand Beach, October 19, as follows: "Bond ashore here and full of water." A special to this morning's Buffalo Express, dated Sand Beach at 10 o'clock last night, says: 'The schooner O.M. Bond bound up with a cargo of coal from Oswego to Milwaukee, struck and sunk half a mile below Sand Beach early this morning. The captain thinks she can be pumped. Wind west and light; weather fine."

The Bond left here October 9 with 530 tons of coal for Milwaukee. She is owned, wo thirds by Capt. Lefevre and one third by Mr. McCollum. Sand Beach is a harbor of refuge, about 50 miles above Port Huron. The Bond was built by A. Miller & Co., Oswego, and launched in April, 1873. She rated A 1, was valued in the register at $10,000 and registered 315 tons. There is an insurance on the hull of $6,666.67 in the Phoenix of Brooklyn and $3,333.33 in the Manhattan of New York.
