NOTE: below would seem to be a totally different casualty, the location of which was not noted, but likely Toronto area ?

Schooner W.Y. EMORY, ashore east of harbor was lightered so much that she was almost floating today, but no tug was secured to pull her off, and the result was that she went on again, harder than before. Capt. Beard has now scuttled the vessel to prevent her going higher up the beach.
A big storm is expected and the result, in all probability will be the breaking up of the schooner.
