Description
Full Text

Disaster- The schooner FLORENCE, a Canadian vessel, met with a disaster when in the locality of the flats a day or two since bound down. The schooner RAPID, in tow with several other vessels, run foul of her while passing, which resulted in carrying the former's jib-boom, bowsprit and head-gear, besides slight injuries to her hull, all of which damages will amount to not far from $200. The RAPID'S injuries were trifling import. The FLORENCE has since been repaired at this port, and has proceeded on her voyage to Port Colborne, whither she is bound.
