AT THE BOTTOM OF LAKE ERIE !
      Unknown Steamer reported to have Sunk Last Week Off Locust Point, Near Sandusky.
Cleveland, O., Oct. 20. - Intelligence has just reached this city from Locust Point that a vessel foundered in the lake off that point some time last week. Last Thursday, as captain Cleaver and a crew of fishermen were nearing their grounds they noticed a lot of wreckage. With the aid of a glass, the captain and his crew say they were able to see a spar projecting from a vessel some distance away. On going to it they found that the vessel had been sunk, and the captain is of the opinion that it was a steamer. There was nothing in sight by which the name of the boat could be ascertained and no information has been received from any source that a boat has been lost, but it is certain that a vessel has gone down at that point and undoubtedly with all on board.
