Mariner (Schooner), capsized, 29 Apr 1832

Full Text

A melancholy accident, if accident it can be called, took place of Colchester point, about five miles from the mouth of the river, on Tuesday afternoon. The American schooner Mariner, under full sail, was capsized in a squall and an entire family of Emigrants perished in the cabin. Just blame is attached to the Captain of the Mariner. He is represented as carrying full sail, under every indication of a tremendous squall. It is said that one of the Steam Boats passed within a mile or two of the wreck without giving any assistance although guns were fired from a schooner which had gone to her relief.
