Description
Full Text

SCHOONER SUNK. -- The little Canadian schooner JAMES ROCK, which has lain at the mouth of Evans' Ship Canal all winter, sunk at her moorings last Saturday. She was hauled close to the dock last fall, and fastened with chains, and with chafing and straining, became badly damaged, and leaky. The action of the ice and water during the present spring drained the oakum from her seams, which was the more immediate cause of her sinking. She was engaged in wrecking last season, and belongs to Jas. H. Moore.
