A letter from Port Burwell to Capt. Warren, of Cleveland, announces the finding near the former place of 2 bodies, with nothing on them and unable to be identified. They are supposed to be the bodies of the crew of the lost scow SUTLER GIRL, as the body of Capt. Doyle was found a few days before in the same vicinity.
