Full Text

WRECKED. -- We are informed that the scow MARY ANN, of this city, was wrecked at Marblehead on Friday night last. The MARY ANN cleared from this port on Thursday for Marblehead and arrived at her destination, was laden with stone. Soon after a squall came up which caused her to break her fastenings, when she was driven upon the rocks and quickly pounded to pieces. The MARY ANN was a comparatively new craft, having been rebuilt during the past winter, and every dollar possessed by her captain, M. Harrington, was invested in her. The vessel is a total loss and uninsured.
