Full Text

The schooner Two Brothers, Capt. Stevenson, sailed from Pultneyville for this port, on Tuesday the 12th inst., laden with wheat and apples. Since then nothing has been heard of her. On Sunday a barrel of apples, the captain's hat and the tiller were picked up ashore near the Nine Mile Point, and fears are entertained that she was lost during the severe gale on Tuesday night.
