Cataract (Schooner), sunk by collision, 1856

Full Text

THE SCHOONER CATARACT. -- Our readers will remember that this vessel was sunk last spring, just above Long Point, from a collision with a propeller, the crew escaping in a small boat and landed at this harbor. The schooner was new, and was loaded with coal and iron. A day or two since the steamer HUDSON left this port, provided with a full complement of men, buoys, diving apparatus and all the necessary tackle to raise the sunken vessel, which lies in about sixty feet of water. The enterprise is conducted by our townsman, Milo Osborn, and if the weather continues favorable, the vessel will be raised and brought into port in a few days. -- Conneaut Reporter.
