Description
Full Text

Another schooner is missing. The CONRAD REED left this port one week ago last Friday in company with the ELIZA ALLEN, both being bound for Port Stanley. The ALLEN has made the round trip, but the REED has not been heard from. Capt. Allen, of the ELIZA ALLEN, yesterday stated that it was his opinion that she had gone down with all hands. he states that there is a schooner on the bottom about 20 miles west of Port Stanley, and 5 miles from land, which he thinks is the REED. The officers of the wrecking stm. MAGNET, with whom he has been in conversation , say that it is their opinion that the sunken vessel is the REED. It will be remembered that she left this port just on the eve of the big gale of that week. The ALLEN and the REED kept company until about Sunday morning, when the captain of the ALLEN was compelled to put for Long Pt., where he remained until the wind and storm had subsided. It is thought the REED went down soon after the ALLEN left her, and as the lake was very rough, before the crew could make the shore they were drowned. Further particulars will be looked for with interest.
