Description
Full Text

The Schooner SOLOMON JUNEAU was driven ashore on Saturday night, Nov. 11th, in a snow storm, six miles below Erie. She was loaded for Chicago, with salt and merchandize. By the assistance of the Revenue cutter ERIE, Capt. Knapp, she was got off on Saturday night last.
      The steamer CONSTITUTION left port yesterday morning, and had proceeded about twelve miles out, when she descried the same schooner with signals of distress flying. On approaching she was found to be in a helpless condition, with all her sails and rudder carried away. The CONSTITUTION put about, took her in tow, and brought her into port.
