WRECK OF THE SCHOONER ROBERT WOOD. -- Capt. Heward of the propeller CHARTER, at 6 o'clock on Friday, P. M., found the schooner ROBERT WOOD, capsized 6 miles below Conneaut, and towed her into that port. She was full of water, her sails washed away, but no one on board. She was loaded with lumber. There was no yawl boat, and nothing has been heard of her crew. Probably all lost. -- Cleveland Herald
