SHIP LOST NEAR PELEE ISLAND.
Ruthven, Ont., Dec. 30. -- Capt. McQueen on Saturday last discovered the sunken fore and aft schooner of 300 tons burden, about 6 miles east of Pelee Island, where it had evidently been sunk very recently as the spars had not been damaged by floating ice. This ship, no doubt went down in the storm of the 11th, inst., while running before the gale, and from the appearance of the wreck, it is believed that all on board perished, there being no means of escaping on account of the large quantity of floating ice.
