Regarding the telegraph announcement of the schr. E.P. DORR being ashore on Charity Shoals, Capt Peter Dufane, her master, writes from Ogdensburg as follows:
"In your issue of the 26th I find an account of my being ashore on Charity Shoal, such is not the case and I wish you would give me the benefit of this denial. I came from Toledo here in 1 week, which I could not have done had I stopped on Charity Shoal."
