Full Text

The schooner DAWN, Capt. Williamson, capsized off Port Washington early yesterday morning. She sprung a leak and became waterlogged. Her crew were picked up by the steamer JOHN SCHROEDER and taken to Milwaukee. The deck load of 50,000 feet of lumber was washed overboard. An attempt will be made to send a tug out to rescue the vessel before she beaches.
